Review Quotes




"Two-years in the making, Dale Brumfield's latest book, Virginia State Penitentiary: A Notorious History, is undoubtedly the most thorough work of its kind on this defunct Richmond institution that had occupied the same spot on Spring Street for almost 200 years. Dale is thorough in his research, digs deep for data, excavates through layers of ancient papers like an archaeologist. In the bibliography there are more than 300 sources cited. But this is much more than a work of history.""
