Civil War Richmond - A remarkable site on Richmond history.

Ruins of the Gallego Flour Mills in the burnt district, Richmond, Va.

A great site on Richmond history is Civil War Richmond - created and maintained by an army of one, Mike Gorman. His description of the site is as follows: "an online research project designed to collect documents, photographs, and maps pertaining to Richmond, Virginia, during the Civil War. Here you will find information regarding many varied facets of life inside the Confederate Capital. Because there is so much information regarding the hospitals and prisons in Richmond, these have been given their own sections - the "other sites" section deals with other important topics, including: battery defenses, cemeteries, industry, and civilian activity."

There's Lots to see and read.
