Book Talk with Bert Dunkerly and Doug Crenshaw

Through four years of war, Richmond served as the Confederate capital. Home to the Confederate President and government, the city was filled with prisons, hospitals, factories, training camps, and government offices. While armies battled at its doorsteps, civilians felt the impact of war. Explore the story, that to this day, remains deeply written into the city and its history.
