Deeds of Valor was a two volume series published in the early 20th Century, prior to World War 1, which aimed to collect and share the stories by which American soldiers won their Medals of Honor.  Volume 1 of the two volume set focuses exclusively on the Union Army during the Civil War, and contains many examples of Medal of Honor winners performing valorous deeds at the Siege of Petersburg.  Check out the introduction from the book, which does a great job of explaining its purpose.  And be sure to look for excerpts for every Medal of Honor winner at the Siege of Petersburg mentioned in Deeds of Valor, Volume 1 to gradually appear at The Siege of Petersburg Online.
