Event Description

Petersburg goedkope adidas zx 750 , Virginia is a city steeped in history. The city s unique history predates America itself, pushing all the way back to 1643 with the founding of Bristol Parish preciously close to the Appomattox River. Fort Henry was erected nearby a few years later. The entire area grew into Peter s Point, and then into Petersburg when established into a town in 1748. Hundreds of years later, Petersburg has slowly made the transition from town to city. The proximity to Richmond has allowed for easy access which pairs nicely with a history which can only be described as rich. Who then visits Petersburg?

One of the Civil War s best known battles happened here, the Battle of the Crater. Today you can see both the crater and the mine shaft Union soldiers dug to reach the Confederate line. The crater marks the spot where they lay the explosives and lit the fuse that caused a massive conflagration and a furious pitched battle. The fall of Petersburg on April 2, 1865 led directly to the end of the Civil War when General Robert E. Lee retreated from the city, yielding it to Union soldiers. He surrendered his army four days later at Appomattox Courthouse. The Art Lover Petersburg s greatest art treasures are the fifteen Tiffany windows which adorn Old Blandford Church. Commissioned by the Ladies Memorial Association of Petersburg to honor the Confederate soldiers buried nearby, Louis Comfort Tiffany and members of his studio designed and installed the windows from1901 to 1912. The thirteen Confederate states and several border states each sponsored a memorial window. The Ladies Memorial Association commissioned an additional window while Mr. Tiffany himself donated the fifteenth window, the resplendent Cross of Jewels . Also worth a visit are two museums adidas zx 750 limited edition , Centre Hill Museum, with its display of nineteenth century decorative arts and the Siege Museum, which is housed in the ca. 1839 Exchange Building and showcases artifacts documenting the ten month siege of Petersburg.
