Visiting Historic Richmond : The Civil War Podcast

Visiting Historic Richmond

My return visit to Washington was sadly lacking in triumph – Protip: Check that your GPS maps are correct before setting out – and I was too strapped for time to get over to Richmond.  If anyone is considering a visit, though, this piece sums up all the great Civil War sites to visit in town.

And look! It suggests a visit to a cemetery where the remains of some of those Jewish soldiers I mentioned are buried.

An offbeat cemetery is the Hebrew Cemetery, dating to 1816 and operated by Congregation Beth Ahabah. Within this cemetery is a plot called the Soldier’s Section. It holds the graves of 30 Jewish Confederate soldiers killed in the Civil War.
