Richmond, Virginia: Sitting in the Ashes - Illustrated

This is a follow up to my post the other day in regards to W.E. Hatcher's eye-witness account of the fall of Richmond, Virginia in April 1865. This image is from Main Street, looking down 14th on 8 April 1865. Note the two women in what appears to be mourning attire.
