Pictures -- "Civil War Williamsburg liberated -- then shelled"
Williamsburg's residents were jubilant when the gray-clad men of Wise's Legion swept a smattering of Union occupiers from the streets on the morning of April 11, 1863. But when the guns at nearby Fort Magruder responded with a half-day-long barrage, the people who had stayed so long to protect their homes began to have second thoughts. -- Mark St. John Erickson
