I will check my file of SHSP articles on Fort Gregg to see if any of the articles I found are missing from this list. It looks as though you have most of what I can remember without having my notes readily at hand.

I will also check my file on SHSP articles on Petersburg and the Appomattox Campaign.

John,

Thanks! I need all of the help I can get recently. I was recently promoted at my day job and the time I used to have available for finding and transcribing Petersburg materials is almost entirely absent right now.
