Richmond Flights Guide
Richmond began as a trading outpost established by English colonists, but over the years it eventually became the capital of the state of Virginia. Today it has a large cosmopolitan center, but during the Civil War it garnered fame as the capital of the southern Confederacy.
When the Confederates fled before an advancing Union army, they ignited munitions left behind. The city was virtually destroyed when the wind carried the flames to every corner. In modern times there are still those sites that aid one to imagine the gritty past. The Historic Downtown, besides fire, has seen hurricane damage as well. The cobblestones are still there, and the buildings are restored. Belle Isle is in the James River, on which residents enjoy boating. There’s an old Civil War prison area there that the Union used. At Hollywood Cemetery in the city center are buried Confederate KIAs. Other sites dedicated to remembrance of the Confederacy include Monument Avenue, Robert E. Lee’s house, the Museum of the Confederacy and the American Civil War Center. The Edgar Allen Poe Museum offers a bit of a change, as does a tour of the State Capitol, designed by Thomas Jefferson.
