The capital of the Confederate States of America was originally in Montgomery, Alabama, beginning in February, 1861. It moved to Richmond, Virginia on May 29, 1861, and remained there until the fall of the city on April 2, 1865. Some cabinet members and legislators met in Danville, Virginia between April 3 and April 10, 1865.
