The year is 1864. A central Virginia town at the junction of the James and Appommatax Rivers, City Point became a critical Union port and supply hub during the Civil War. It’s also the likely location of this fantastic photo showing three classic locomotives. Color is by yours truly at American Photo Colorizing.com.

The year is 1864. Union troops . . . or perhaps they’re Rebs (who can tell?) are seen take a break from the battle, just long enough to “go commando” in the North Anna River of Virginia. In picking a snappy headline – the puns were running rampant, Unfortunately, I couldn’t use most of them, as our pastor reads this blog.

The year is 1865. Petersburg, Virginia was the kind of sleepy little village you’d expect to find on a Courier and Ives print. That is, until the Civil War came to town. Here’s the quaint log cottage of Union Colonel, Nathaniel Michler. As you can see, there’s barely enough space inside for the widescreen TV.

The year is 1865. Today, we’ve returned to the 1860s, not so much for the Civil War – but the Revolutionary War-era. This is “The Old Stone House”, one of Richmond, Virginia’s oldest buildings. Built in 1754, today it serves as the Edgar Allen Poe Museum. The stone and brick work that dominates the scene, shows amazing detail in this photo, making for a lifelike image when colorized.

The year is 1864. Some of the clearest, crispest photos I’ve located from the Civil War-era were taken in Petersburg, Virginia. They also number among some of my favorite antique photos to colorize. To conform the image into “standard dimensions”, it was necessary to extend the brick building on the left. The centerpiece of this quaint photo is the Petersburg Court House as it appeared 150 years ago.

First, lets see the court house as it stands today.
