The Richmond National Battlefield Park commemorates 13 American Civil War sites around Richmond, Virginia, which served as the capital of the Confederate States of America for most of the war. The park connects certain features within the city with defensive fortifications and battle sites around it.
The Tredegar Iron Works was the chief ironworks of the Confederacy, and a big factor in the decision to make Richmond its capital. It supplied about half the artillery used by the Confederate States Army.
the Chimborazo Hospital was the Confederacy’s biggest hospital camp, accommodating up to 4000 patients at a time, mainly for convalescence.
Other battlefield sites around Richmond include sites associated with the Peninsula Campaign, The Seven Days Battles, The Overland Campaign and the siege of Petersburg.
