Upfront, your website is a masterpiece of historical research. My group and I are researching the Battle of Petersburg and I have found the first hand accounts as invaluable glimpses into our nation military’s past.
The purpose of this message is to pick your brain regarding ammunition stores during the siege. Do you have any idea how much small arms and gun ammo was stored at the wharf on the James, and any idea how much stock was on the field?
Thanks for the very kind words! I definitely appreciate them. As far as ammo stores at City Point and near the front lines, I’m afraid that’s a topic I’ve never spent any time with. In this case I cannot even point you to a good source. I’ll mark this down on my “to do” spreadsheet of possible research topics in the future.
