      Brett, while this 11th Maine book claims to be compiled by “A Committee of the Regimental Association” the copyright is held by Albert Maxfield who is none other than Captain Albert Maxfield from the regiment. Based on the writing in the book I believe he is the principal author. He was present during the fight at Fort Gregg and added confusion to whether 2 companies or the entire 11th Maine strayed away, against orders during the preliminary Union maneuvering prior to the 1 pm attack on Fort Gregg. This book was helpful in putting the Fort Gregg puzzle pieces together.

      John,

      Thanks for the clarification. This type of comment which adds value to the posts I put up is exactly why I started Beyond the Crater. Others have done research into various aspects of the Siege of Petersburg, whether for a full-length book like you or just by researching their ancestor. Either way, I’m hoping to see much more of this help down the line as more people find the site. I’ll go ahead and update the post with your added information.

      Brett
