The grim site of Chimborazo, one of the Confederacy's largest hospitals, begins a tour of the Civil War battlefields of Richmond. A map obtained here will lead you to the sites of the Battles of Chickahominy Bluff, Beaver Dam Creek, and many more. The bloodiest battle of all was at Cold Harbor. The losses here were greater than those at Gettysburg when time is figured in; 16,000 men were lost, 8,000 in one hour. Admission is free.
