Driving down Monument Avenue is a history lesson in Southern history. The monuments on the avenue give you a quick look at who was important in southern history. Worth a trip.

When visiting Richmond we drove down the avenue stopping to take photos of the main characters that shaped the City. Statues of Lee, Davis, JEB Stuart from the civil war and Arthur Ash from tennis are there. So good to see the heroes of the South memorialised on one avenue.

When you walk or drive down Monument Avenue you are going down one of the most elegant streets in Americal. The architecture, the statues of the Southern Leaders and the wide streets and avenue make this a must see stop while you are in Richmond.

Rude or walk down this street and see all the players of the civil war f r on the south. They added Arthur Ash to try and b a lance all the southern generals. Be a dutiful sculpture worth the drive. Great architecture in the buildings too.

Richmond, Virginia, is a Civil War historian's version of Valhalla. Book a room at the Jefferson Hotel for three days and visit Hollywood Cemetery, the White House and Museum of the Confederacy, the Tredegar Iron Works, Belle Isle, the Virginia Capitol, St. John's Episcopal Church, Chimborazo Hospital and Monument Avenue. Monument Avenue is a boulevard with a tree-lined grassy mall... More
