Changes Following the surrender of Vicksburg the brigade fell into a period of idleness. Sickness filled the hospital boat, Woodford, and Ellet found it a perfect time to grant leaves. To take up time with the rest of the command Ellet conducted a number…

The Petersburg Campaign, Volume 2: The Western Front Battles is the second volume collecting the previsouly unpublished manuscripts Ed Bearss wrote for the National Park Service in the 1960s.  If you look at most of the published secondary works to come out on the Siege since, you'll soon realize Bearss' manuscripts are a go to resource for those interested in studying the Siege of Petersburg.  I can now retire the dog-eared copies I obtained from Petersburg National Battlefield in 2003 and utilize this two-volume set by Savas Beatie.

Story
Introduction
I grew up in small-town southern Illinois about half an hour away from St. Louis.  My major interests are the American Civil War, the St. Louis Cardinals and Blues, Notre Dame Fighting Irish football, Illinois Fighting Illini basketball, college basketball and baseball in general, horror films and stories, computers and web design, and military history of any kind.  I am the founder of TOCWOC - A Civil War Blog, which is linked to in this profile.  Come visit the blog to read about the latest Civil War books, Civil War magazines, Civil War games, and many other Civil War related material.  I am the owner/editor of The Siege of Petersburg Online, a Civil War web site focusing on all things pertaining to the 1864-1865 Siege of Petersburg and Richmond.
