Mr. Lankford discussed his book, Richmond Burning: The Last Days of the Confederate Capitol, published by Viking. In it, he reconstructs the final moments in Richmond before the collapse of the Confederacy. In the last days of the Civil War, advancing Union soldiers found a large portion of Richmond was burning.
