Richmond National Battlefield Park provides special interpretive programs throughout the year. Sadly, not everyone gets a chance to attend these programs. With the advent of the podcast, the park hopes to change that by making those programs available to website visitors from the comfort of their own homes. Some of these programs can be used as virtual tours or even just as a way to learn a little something new about Richmond's history.
