Overview

Situated on the James River, the Tredegar Iron Works, already a thriving factory, produced much of the guns, ammunition and warship armor needed by the Confederate army. For the duration of the war, operations continued nonstop to supply the southern troops. When the war was lost in 1865, Tredegar was instrumental in helping to rebuild the South and stayed in business until the 1950s. Tredgar is operated by the National Park Service and is part of the Richmond National Battlefield Park system. Visitors can take a self-guided tour through the ruins and learn of the importance of this strategic city in the Civil War.
