Civil War States: Virginia
by findingDulcinea Staff
Virginia isn't a terribly large state — just shy of 40,000 square miles in land area—but it's filled with enough Civil War history to give any scholar or history buff enough reading for many years. Thousands of soldiers fought some of the war's bloodiest battles and lost their lives in this state. Today, their efforts have been immortalized in national parks, photographs and firsthand accounts that have been preserved and passed down for decades.
