Chapter 2 - Evelynton, Highway 5

Across the wide and marshy Herring Creek, the Virginia Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) were hosting a reception, kicking off its annual convention on the lush lawn of Evelynton Plantation.

 

As soon as they were able to get onto Highway 5, they raced west up the winding byway, cutting through the farms and forests, paralleling the James River.

 

Making wild time on the snaky road, in a dozen minutes they were at the junction of Richmond’s beltway.
