Civil War Richmond

By Linda Tancs

It’s been over 150 years since the start of the Civil War.  And the pulse of Civil War history can be found in Richmond, Virginia, onetime capital of the Confederate States of America.  In downtown Richmond’s historic Court End neighborhood you’ll find the White House of the Confederacy, home to Confederate President Jefferson Davis and his family for most of the war.  A National Historic Landmark, the neoclassical mansion has been restored to its wartime appearance and includes half of the family’s furnishings.  Guided tours are offered daily.
