Trip Rewind Virginia 2008: Touring Civil War sites of Richmond Virginia

Civil War Sites Near Richmond Virgina
Civil War Cannon

With a full day to explore Richmond Virginia while we waited for the NASCAR race, Amy, her family and I worked on coming up with a plan to spend our time. Due to the tropical storm weather we were slightly limited to indoor activities. Given our location were were able to take advantage of some Civil War Sites near Richmond Virgina.  Richmond after all was the location of the White House of the Confederacy.

Up first was Tredegar Iron Works, a building dedicated to the production of war goods for the Confederacy. Inside the building we found all sorts of artillery ranging from guns to cannons used during the Civil War and other historical artifacts.
