A. P. Hill


General Ambrose Powell (A.P.) Hill stands at the very busy intersection of Hermitage Road and Laburnum Avenue on the North side of Richmond and was part of Lewis Ginter's development of the the Ginter Park neighborhood. He fought under both Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee in the Civil War and is buried under this monument.

This is the only monument to the General, even though he was neither born here, nor considered Richmond his home, although there is Fort A.P. Hill Army Base about an hour north. It just goes again to show you how Richmond will love anything from the Civil War (well, any Southern thing).

    Hi Mea
    curious how all over the world there are monuments to generals and military people - perhaps they are all commissioned by generals and military people.
