National Tribune

Image of the Cover of an issue of The National Tribune weekly newspaper.The National Tribune was a monthly and then weekly newspaper published from 1877-1917. The National Tribune was essentially the newspaper of the Grand Army of the Republic, the largest and most famous of the postwar Union veteran organizations. Its pages are filled with first person accounts of famous Civil War battles, including those fought during the Siege of Petersburg. Like similar Confederate post-war publications, the length of time between the war and when these accounts were written as well as the potential desire of writers to make themselves look better calls into question the accuracy of many accounts.

Various articles from the National Tribune which pertain the Siege of Petersburg will begin to appear here as I find time to transcribe and edit them.
