I remember reading about Deep Bottom in Noah Trudeau's "The Last Citadel..." and wondering what was still there. I have not been to that part of Richmond.

"While there are no concrete plans for walking trails, interpretative signs or ecological projects yet, Agelasto said the there’s new significance for the battles at Deep Bottom given a recent proposal by Richmond 2nd District Councilwoman Kim Gray to memorialize black Union soldiers whose units also fought there."

Maybe something will happen with that in my lifetime.
