Richmond, Virginia

Day 550

     For our last day on the road this year, we chose to visit The Confederate President’s House in Richmond, Virginia.

     Jefferson Davis and his family moved here when the Capitol of the Confederacy was changed from Montgomery, Alabama on May 8, 1861. They lived here until fleeing from Grant’s Army on April 2, 1865.

     On display was the coat and vest he was wearing when captured on  May 10, 1865.
