In Richmond ...
-- monuments to the bloody years of the Civil War are all around.
-- Civil War parks, historic buildings, trails, tours, and museums compete for attention and money.
-- enslaved people were bought and sold and used for labor and other purposes.
-- prisoners of war were kept on an island and in a secret dungeon.
-- the city was burned by confederate troops to prevent capture of its war-making industry.
-- Lincoln walked through the burned ruins of the city and was cheered by emancipated slaves; 150 years later, Spielberg is making a Lincoln movie here.
