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.
