Richmond has seen more than its fair share of history. Although it is probably best known as the site of one of the first English settlements in America and for its role as the Confederate capital in the Civil War, the city's past has much more to offer. Since 1992, Harry Kollatz Jr. has been recording the lesser-known heritage of Virginia's Holy City in his "Flashback" column in Richmond Magazine. From the inauguration of the world's first practical electric trolley system and early civils rights activists, to a psychic horse and a wild ride on a sturgeon, he has covered it all. Compiled for the first time in this volume, this selection of articles is sure to delight all who love Richmond by shedding light on some of the city's lesser-known stories.
Harry Kollatz Jr, a Richmond native, has been writing for Richmond Magazine for 14 years.
