Archival Sources of written accounts about Richmond, VA during the Civil War.
This category collects together selected transcribed sources from various archives. Here, you will find many articles on various subjects, arranged chronologically. Sub categories have been included for The National Archives and Records Administration, The Library of Congress, and all other archives.
All the articles here have been cross-referenced in the pages that deal with them. For example, an article on Libby Prison would also be found on the Libby Prison page. There are several articles here, however, that have no other logical place and thus this is the only place you might find them on this site. Examples of this would be general descriptions of the city, and other incidents that give a glimpse into what life was like, but do not deal directly with any physical site. All articles have been here arranged chronologically so that all incidents may be placed within some sort of context.
