What was the capital of the Confederate States of America during the majority of the Civil War?
Answer: It may surprise you that the Confederacy actually had three capitals during the war. The first was in the heart of the deep South in Montgomery, Alabama, lasting only four months. On May 8, 1861, the decision was made to name the Richmond, Virginia as the new Capital of the Confederacy. Richmond served as the capital of the Confederate States of America for the vast majority of the Civil War. The last capital of the Confederacy was Danville, Virginia which lasted a whopping seven days. Richmond, obviously, held on to the title the longest. Source:triviatoday.com
