The Gallego Flour Mills, or what was left of them, in Richmond, VA, April, 1865. The "turn around pool" of the Kanawha Canal looks like a snowfield in front of the ruins. All of the industrial area between the Kanawha Canal and the James River were similarly destroyed by fire.
Since the advent of modern warfare, the loser's capital city always ends up looking like this.
