Richmond, the former Capital of the Confederacy and the current Capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia has an abundance of history to share.
Begin with the Virginia Historical Society, a great place to get an overview of Virginia history. You can even research your own family history at the library there.
The Museum and White House of the Confederacy offers one of the largest collections on Confederate art, artifacts and documents in the world. Visit Hollywood Cemetery, named for its multitude of holly trees, where more than 18,000 Confederate Soldiers are buried.
Stroll along Richmond's Canal Walk and read the markers along the way. You can visit the Richmond National Battlefield Park - Civil War Visitor Center and The American Civil War Center at Tredegar Iron Works across the street from the canal. During warm months, enjoy a cruise along the Canal Walk, too!
Another popular site includes the Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site, the home of the first female bank president who lived in Richmond, aka the "Birthplace of of Black Capitalism."
