The African American Civil War Museum, located on the U Street corridor, is one of the most culturally rich places in that neighborhood. It embraces and showcasees the story of the United States colored troops. A largely unknown story where colored americans fought for the union in the American civil war and many lost their lives in order to give peace to other Americans. I believe it is fittting for this museum to be in U Street because it highlights many traits that African Americans have. It shows how pioneering and revoultionary the black society of America can prove to be. Most importantly, the significance of the museum shows the unity of the African American and explains how U Street became such a famous street.
