"Embattled Capital: A Guide to Richmond During the Civil War"
published by Savas Beatie in January 2021 as part of the Emerging Civil War Series.
Just 100 miles from Washington, DC, Richmond served as a symbol of the rebellion itself. Richmond was home to the Confederate Congress, cabinet, president, and military leadership. And it housed not only the Confederate government, but also some of the Confederacy’s most important industry and infrastructure. The city was filled with prisons, hospitals, factories, training camps, and government offices. Through four years of war, armies battled at its doorsteps—and even penetrated its defenses. To this day, the war’s legacy remains deeply written into the city and its history. Historians Doug Crenshaw and Robert M. Dunkerly tell the story of the Confederate capital before, during, and after the Civil War in the book: Embattled Capital: A Guide to Richmond During the Civil War.
