Emerging Civil War has a nice set of three guest posts by Edward Alexander which cover the final charge of Captain Charles C. Morey, 2nd Vermont Infantry, at the Battle of Petersburg, on April 2, 1864.  Morey had made it through the entire war, including the Sixth Corps’ “breakthrough” charge on the morning of the Siege of Petersburg’s last day.  It was in the final Sixth Corps action at Petersburg, later in the day, as the Union armies fully encircled Petersburg to the Appomattox River, that Morey breathed his last.  Go check it out.
