Illuminating Poe for everyone, evermore.
A city steeped in history.
Best known as the capital of the Confederacy, Richmond's history encompasses much more than the Civil War. Visit the state capitol, designed by Thomas Jefferson, and tour Shockoe Bottom, one of the city's oldest neighborhoods. Follow the route that enslaved people took from the ship to the auction block on the Richmond Slave Trail. Go back to Gilded Age Richmond at the Jefferson Hotel and lean the history of the statues that once lined the famed Monument Avenue. See lesser known sites like the Maggie Walker Home and the Black History Museum in the historically African American Jackson Ward neighborhood. Local author Kirstin Thrower Stowe guides a series of expeditions through the River City's past.
Paperback, 238 pages.
