Richmond Selected as the Capital of the Confederacy (National Park Service, 1961)

The attached essay explains why the elder statesmen of the Confederacy selected Richmond, Virginia to serve as the seat of their doomed plutocracy. Seeing that the city was a mere 110 miles from Washington, D.C., it seemed like an odd choice, yet

"Second only to New Orleans, Richmond was the largest city in the Confederacy, having a population of about 38,000. It was also the center of iron manufacturing in the South. The Tredegar Iron Works, main source of cannon supply for the Southern armies, influenced the choice of Richmond as the Confederate Capital and demanded defense."

The Sinking of the C.S.S. ALABAMA (Famous Events Magazine, 1913)

This short article from "The Famous Events of the World" was written at a time when the Civil War was still fresh in the American memory; and although their lines were thinning, the veterans of that war were still walking the streets. One of the important events of the American Civil War during the year 1864 was the sinking of the Confederate pirate ship, C.S.S. ALABAMA, commanded by Raphael Semmes(1809-1877):

"After a long course of capturing and destroying Northern merchant ships, the ALABAMA was caught in a French harbor by the United States frigate KEARSARGE. The "Kearsarge" defied the ALABAMA to battle; and the Confederate ship, accepting the challenge, steamed confidently forth amid salvos of applause from the French and English spectators. The KEARSARGE completely outfought her, and sank her."
