American Civil War veterans pose outside the Confederate Soldier's Home in Richmond, Virginia.

The R. E. Lee Camp No. 1, Confederate Soldiers Home Memorial Building is a National Historic Landmark, Civil War Historic site in Richmond, Virginia. Confederate Veterans who fought in America's Civil War pose outside 'Fleming Hall', the R.E. Lee Camp No. 1, Confederate Soldier's Home Museum building and headquarters. The next scene shows all the Camp's veterans assembled for the cleaning a civil war artillery cannon. 'Fleming Hall' can be seen in the distance on the left. It was established as the first Confederate Soldiers Home in December 1884. In the center distance is the 1885 'Pegram Hall' barracks, named to memorialize two brothers who were killed in battle. Behind the veteran in the next scene, is the meeting hall named 'Randolph Hall' on the left, which was built in 1885 and appears with 'Cooke Hall' barracks built in 1894. The latter has a two-story balcony used as first and second floor rocking chair porches, facing the Boulevard to the right. (The United Daughters of the Confederacy national headquarters now stands on the site, facing the Boulevard, where 'Cooke Hall', the 1893 'Soldiers Home hospital' and 'Pegram Hall' once stood.) The President Jefferson Davis Monument seen, is located on Monument Avenue. Confederate monuments and memorials grace each intersection throughout its entire length, to honor fallen Confederate officers, as prescribed in the code of the City of Richmond at the request of the Stonewall Jackson Camp Number 981, Sons of Confederate Veterans. Last segment shows Richmond's Star Fort number ten of the Inter-city-defenses that guard the left flank of old Deep Run Turnpike (now named Broad Street). The canon seen to the right behind the Star-fort breast works is the Monument Avenue landmark for the site that exists today just east of President Davis' Monument.
