The American Civil War Center is weighing a $100,000 gift to its interactive Richmond education center.

The gift is a bronze likeness of Confederate President Jefferson Davis being cast by Lexington sculptor Gary Casteel. The offer comes from the Sons of Confederate Veterans.


Center officials and representatives of the Sons of Confederate Veterans will discuss the offer on Tuesday. No immediate decision is expected.
