Description: 

Richmond, Virginia, was the capital of the Confederacy during the Civil War, and almost the last place in the South to fall to Union forces. There is no obvious connection between the city and the Sartorises or the Millards; Granny may have "sent her ear-rings and brooch to Richmond" as a material contribution to the Confederate cause (670).
