New exhibit at Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania NMP focuses on history of segregation within park

A window into America's segregated past has opened at Fredericksburg and Spotslvania National Military Park in Virginia, where a former garage that in the 1930s and 1940s housed segregated restrooms for African American visitors is the focal point of a wayside exhibit.

One of those restrooms is still in use and retains original tile and fixtures. The larger building is today the park’s gift shop and bookstore.
