Ashes of Glory: Richmond at War

Ashes of Glory: Richmond at War

written by: Ernest B. Furgurson

performed by: Joel Richards

On the day the first shots of the Civil War were fired, a mob in Richmond clambered on top of the Capitol to raise the Confederate flag. Four years later, another flag was raised in its place while the city burned below. A 13-year-old girl compared the stars and stripes to “so many bloody gashes”. This richly detailed, absorbing book brings to life the years in which Richmond was the symbol of Southern independence and the theater for a drama as splendid, sordid, and tragic as the war itself.
