August 1864 News

This page of Beyond the Crater: The Siege of Petersburg Online contains newspaper articles from a wide variety of American newspapers for the month of August 1864.  Each article pertains in some way to the Siege of Petersburg and has been transcribed exactly as it appeared in whichever newspaper it was published in.  Misspellings, grammatical errors, errors in fact, and any other possible errors have not been changed.  We hope these articles provide readers with a look at the Petersburg Campaign as Americans read about in it in August 1864.
