Lecture on Chimborazo Hill

Prof. Poland lectures at an overlook, Chimborazo Park.

This year's series of NVCC field trips started at Chimborazo Park in Richmond. We were studying Civil War hospitals and prisons and Chimborazo was the site of a large Confederate hospital complex. Other stops that day were the Confederate White House, Belle Isle, and Hollywood Cemetery.

It was a lovely day for a tour and even though Richmond is a long day from home, I enjoyed going there again. It's a pleasant city to visit if you know where to go.
