Where was the capitol during the Civil War?

The Virginia State Capitol which also served as the Capitol of the Confederacy, was not burned during the war. Much of the area around Capitol Square WAS burned, but the park-like grounds of the Capitol separated it from the fires. It was built in 1785, still stands today, and is open to visitors. The Yankees DID steal the flag from the building- but we got it back.
