General McClellan was the first Union leader to lay siege to Richmond, and that was just the beginning. TheMoreRichmond became the capital of the Confederacy when Virginia joined the Southern cause, marking the city as a prime target for the Union army.

General McClellan was the first Union leader to lay siege to Richmond, and that was just the beginning. The attractive and genteel city of Richmond would be transformed into a refugee camp, a scene of riots, and a city-sized hospital before the war was over. Making use of diaries, letters, and newspaper accounts from the era, Wright brings readers face to face with the men and women who fought for the city, endured starvation, observed Lees defeats and Grants progress, and witnessed the Confederacys last days.
