Just across the James River from downtown Richmond, Va., is Old Town Manchester, a contraband camp established in 1865. Now an organized neighborhood with a commercial district, this camp was a series of military tents set up near the Richmond-Danville Railroad.

The editors sincerely thank the knowledgeable researchers at the Valentine Richmond History Center for their help in identifying some of these landmarks and buildings.
