Mike Gorman talks to host Jeff Majer about President Abraham Lincoln‚Äôs historic trip to Richmond less then 48 hour after the evacuation of the Confederate Government.¬† The Confederates had held the strong hold in RVA for 4 years and on their way out of town the business district will be set ablaze.
When the President appears on the banks of the James River he will be mobbed by newly freed slaves as he tries to push his way through Shockoe.
Gorman is a historian with the National Park Service and compiles sources about Civil War Richmond at www.mdgorman.com.
