Battle and Skirmish Summaries
The Battle and Skirmish pages are one of the foundational sets of pages here at The Siege of Petersburg Online. You can click on an Offensive or other section below, and then click on the battle or skirmish you are interested in.
The page for each battle describes the battle, outlines who participated, gives strengths and losses, displays some relevant maps, and generally provides a quick overview of what happened. Below the battle summary is a list of EVERY mention of that battle on this entire site.
In this way, if you are interested in a given battle or skirmish for whatever reason (research, an ancestor was killed or wounded at that battle, etc.), you can find out what we’ve published that is relevant to your interests. These link lists will continue to grow every week as new items are added to the site and tagged with the relevant battles.
