Tredegar Iron Works in Southern VictoryEdit

The Tredegar Iron Works was the largest of its kind in the South, a fact that played a significant role in the decision to relocate the capital of the Confederacy from Montgomery, Alabama, to Richmond in May 1861.

After the War of Secession, it continued manufacturing arms for the CSA, turning out rifles like the Tredegar Carbine, Tredegar rifle and Automatic Rifle.

The Tredegar Iron Works was destroyed by US bombing raids during the Second Great War.
