MAP: The “Capture” of Petersburg, June 1864 (NP: Philadelphia Inquirer)


in The 2nd Battle of Petersburg



  1. “The Capture of Petersburg.” Philadelphia Inquirer. June 18, 1864, p. 1 col. 3-5: Please not that this map is INCORRECT.  Petersburg was NOT captured in June 1864.  The map shows Union forces surrounding Petersburg.  It took the Union army many more troops and 9.5 months to actually get to the points depicted on this map.
