TAH Goes to Richmond

A very interesting 3-part day. The drive to Richmond was about an hour, and once we were there, we filled the time with Virginia’s history:

  • The Virginia War Museum, with information about Virginia’s involvement in wars from WWII to present,
  • The Virginia State Capitol, an incredible history museum, and
  • Jefferson Davis’s Home and capitol of the confederacy (no pictures allowed in the home, unfortunately).

We had a full day before heading back to Williamsburg, dinner, and bed. An early night because we left the hotel at a very, very early time to head to the airport.
