To most history travelers, Virginia is the Civil War. It is the state where the Battles of Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, Petersburg, the Wilderness, and Manassas took place. The city of Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy. Appomattox saw the surrender of Lee to Grant. The campaigns that were fought here were led by some of the war's most visible leaders -- Lee, Jackson, Grant, Meade, Sheridan, Stuart, Mosby.This guide also includes West Virginia, which was created from a section of Virginia early in the war.
