    In April 1865, after four years at the heart of the Civil War, Richmond—the capital of the Confederacy—finally fell. The Confederate government evacuated and Union army units—including United States Colored Troops—entered the city and arrived at the Capitol. That moment foreshadowed the reunification of the United States, the end of 250 years of American slavery, and the beginning of an uncertain journey into freedom for African-Americans here and across the country.
