    Hi Brett,
    I’m interested in using this map in a presentation that I do on the Action at Wilson’s Wharf. I would be happy to give you credit in a caption beside the map.

    You have my permission to use the map along with a credit to “The Siege of Petersburg Online (https://www.beyondthecrater.com)”. Thanks for asking! I’d love to see a copy of the presentation sometime. I’ll email you privately so you have my email address.
