There are more than eighty accounts of Lincoln's visit to the city--and many agree here and there--but not one of them agrees with the others. Accounts agree that Lincoln landed on the shores of the James River in a rowboat accompanied by his son Tad. It was Tad's 12th birthday. A statue of the two that commemorates this event is located at Historic Tredegar Ironworks downtown. Though this event is not portrayed in Spielberg's "Lincoln," the movie will generate renewed interest in this profound occurrence in Richmond history.
Maury Place at Monument is the perfect lodging when visiting Richmond's many historic and Civil War attractions.
