As the sun sets over James River in Richmond, Virginia, we end our series of images from this part of the country.
Bridges of various kinds are used to cross James River in Richmond, Virginia. Here is a combined, underside perspective of a concrete bridge and a steel one.
Richmond, the capital of Virginia, is among America’s oldest major cities. Patrick Henry, a U.S. Founding Father, famously declared “Give me liberty or give me death” at its St. John’s Church in 1775, leading to the Revolutionary War.
The James is Virginia’s largest river, running roughly 350 miles from northern Botetourt County to the Chesapeake Bay. The James is also one of the longest rivers in the U.S. that lies within one state.
