Sock Collection at the Battle of Richmond Visitors Center

Throughout the Civil War, soldiers in both blue and grey often faced a shortage of a common clothing item we take for granted: socks. During the Christmas season this year, the Battle of Richmond Visitors Center will again be collecting new, pre-packaged socks to be distributed to the less fortunate.  The staff of the Battle of Richmond Visitors Center is asking individuals to drop off their stocking contributions at the facility located at 101 Battlefield Memorial Highway.  The center is open 10:00 AM-4:30 PM Monday-Friday, and on Saturday's from 10:00 AM-2:00 PM.  This program will run from Monday, November 27th thru December 19th.  For additional information, call the Battle of Richmond Visitors Center at 859-624-0013.
