Abraham Lincoln Visits Richmond
After Richmond fell to Union troops, President Lincoln, accompanied by son Tad, traveled to the city and triumphantly walked through its streets on his way to meet with Union leaders. Freed slaves and Union supporters greeted Lincoln and welcomed his arrival, but others were silent and uncertain about his visit. Crowds surrounded Lincoln on all sides as he trekked through the city. Lincoln met with his Union advisors and Confederate leaders to discuss the end of the war, then toured the city by carriage to view its most famous sites.
