Part 3: Commemoration of the Fall of Richmond … the Executive Mansion

By Lynn R. Mitchell

??????????During the weekend of April 4, 2015 and the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the fall of Richmond during the Civil War, tourists were invited for a brief walk-through tour of Virginia’s Executive Mansion.

Terry, were you home? We stopped by to visit….

??????????Inside the Mansion. There was a different feeling walking within the roped-off areas. A a guest of Governor Bob McDonnell, we were free to truly observe the architecture and furnishings of this iconic landmark that belongs to the people of Virginia. Filled with friends and colleagues, the rooms were filled with laughter and lively conversation.
