Editor’s Note: Do you have information on this unit’s role at the Siege of Petersburg?  Please contact us using the Contact button in the menu at the top of the screen.  We are happy to exchange information with other researchers.

Note: I know almost nothing about Richmond’s Provost Guard during the Siege of Petersburg.  I also do not know if this unit was made up of members of other permanent organizations or even just one permanent organization.  This page will serve as a placeholder until more information can be found.
