Historic Downtown Petersburg, Virginia

A 17th Century Multi-cultural Global Economic Maritime Community

Ask any historian about the city of Petersburg and the civil war and the battle of the crater comes to mind.
The civil war was a well documented historical event recorded in local newspapers including artistic  images
from the battles.  Early period photography on file at the Library of Congress also provide details beyond words.

It takes a "historian's historian" like Ronald Seagrave, author, and publisher to document early period history
using graveyard markers, merchant receipts,  shipping records, and the internet to contact private collectors
the world over to discover the people who build this uniquely American city of Petersburg.

Just released from Ourskirts Press, Inc.  on November 15, 2009 is one of Ronald Seagrave's greatest publications:
The Early Artisans & Mechanics of Petersburg, Virginia, 1607-1860
The Building of a Multi-cultural Maritime Community
