151 years ago this week, during the first year of the Civil War, General George McClellan and the Union Army failed to take the Confederate capital of Richmond, Virginia. This defeat led to almost three more years of fighting between the North and the South.
Steve Eiden’s project Looking Toward Ft. Sumter examines the modern landscape and residents of Civil War sites throughout the North and South.
