Great Hall

The oil portrait hanging in the Great Hall was painted    by G. B. Matthews, 1906 for the Jamestown Expedition, and later given to the Robert E. Lee Camp No. 1, United Confederate Veterans. The C.S.S. Virginia was originally a fine Union steam frigate of 3,500 tons known as the Merrimac. On March 8, 1862, she entered the Hampton Roads, sank the Cumberland, destroyed the Congress, and drove the Minnesota aground. On the morning of March 9, 1862, when the Virginia returned to complete the destruction of the Minnesota, she was met by a still stranger craft -- the Monitor -- of only 776 tons.


The Memorial Building houses the UDC's Business Office and Headquarters and two libraries -- the Caroline Meriwether Goodlett Library and the Helen Walpole Brewer Library.
