RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A new museum in Richmond that will marry the collections of two Civil War museums has a name.

The American Civil War Museum will be built along the James River at the site of the Tredegar Iron Works, where much of the South's cannons were forged during the Civil War. The name was announced Wednesday by The Museum of the Confederacy and The American Civil War Center.

The name choice was based on market research and discussions among museum leaders.

When completed in 2016, the museum will combine the best aspects of both museums within a $30 million showcase. The Confederacy museum has a vast collection of Southern artifacts from swords to uniforms, while the Civil War Center uses interactive exhibits to tell the story of the Civil War.
