Richmond has today become one or the most important cities in the South. The foundation was laid for this early in its history. In 1775 Richmond was a village of only a few houses; in 1860 it was a growing city.The story o! the years between 1775 and 1860 is tied up closely with the story or the migration or people into Richmond and with their lives as they helped to develop the capital or Virginia.
I have in this paper attempted to show the trend of migration into Richmond from 1775 to 1860 and to show the important part that some of the individual immigrants played in developing the city.
