150 Years Ago Today at Petersburg: October 2, 1864

October 2, 1864

The Battle of Poplar Spring Church, including combats at Wyatt’s, Peebles’, and Pegram’s Farms, Chappell House, and the Vaughan Road, Richmond, VA, Campaign as Lieut. Gen. A. P. Hill, CSA, beats back the Union offensive.  However, the Union lines are extended which further stretches the already thin Rebel lines.
