Richmond has often been called a Civil War town, but how much do we know about the average Richmonder during the tumultuous 4 years that were the Civil War? ¬†This is the first of a series new periodic series called Civil War Life in Richmond. ¬†The series will examine what it would be like for civilians to live in RVA. ¬†This first episode features Historian and Park Guide from the National Park Service Mike Gorman. ¬†Gorman was on episode 10 Lincoln in Richmond.
Topics rang from how the newspapers covered daily life in RVA to the reaction to already having a city government, housing the Virginia state government and then mixing in a federal government that was housed in the same building as the state government.
Mike Gorman maintains a fantastic website with a great mount of information about Civil War Richmond. ¬†It can be found at¬†mdgorman.com
