Imagine a chicken costing $50! This excessive price was demanded of Petersburg citizens during the Civil War. The largest siege of any American city took place here when, for ten months, Union troops relentlessly attacked to facilitate taking nearby Richmond. The subsequent conditions in Petersburg are explored at the Siege Museum. The museum is located in the former commodities market and illustrates how residents lived before, during and after the War. Petersburg is about a half hour from Richmond. Take I-95 south into the city.
The Siege Musuem is a must for anyone who enjoys seeing Civil War sites. The location is in old town Petersburg which gives you a really good locale from which to start looking around. The museum starts with a really good film about Petersburg and it's history. The interior of the building is nostaligic in itself.
I had a good time here.
