Siege of Petersburg Online at BeyondtheCrater.com

The Siege of Petersburg near Richmond, Virginia is featured in an excellent online resource called “Beyond the Crater”.   Don’t miss this detailed coverage of a series of campaigns that are sometimes overlooked in the study of Civil War strategics.   Here, from the site’s introduction:

 Welcome to The Siege of Petersburg Online, an information compilation site focusing on the Siege of Petersburg during the American Civil War. The Richmond-Petersburg Campaign was, rather than a true siege, a series of nine offensives by the Union forces against the Confederates defending Petersburg and Richmond, Virginia. The campaign for Petersburg lasted from June 15, 1864 until April 2, 1865, claiming 50,000 Union soldiers and 32,000 Confederates. The Siege of Petersburg has been criminally neglected in the study of the Civil War, and this site aims to partially rectify that lack of coverage.
