Ashes of Glory: Richmond at War, by Ernest B. Furgurson. The siege of Richmond, Virginia, is unlike anything in the history of America. For four years the Union soldiers tied an ever-tightening noose around the defiant city. That story--and the way Ernest B. Furgurson tells it--is reason enough to tackle this work. But even more fascinating is Furgurson's exploration of the minds of the residents who so passionately supported the Confederate cause. Visit Richmond in its proudest moments, when it envisioned victory; visit Richmond in its darkest times, when it felt flames. (464 pages, 8 x 5, Paperback)
