Greetings. Since our last update here. Julia Steele and David Lowe have retired from the National Park Service and if anything here conflicts with NPS policies, then we officially no longer care. We all had a good ride. It is time for the youngsters to take over. Our colleague, Dr. Philip Shiman is still working full-time (poor soul) for the US Defense Department in a classified position. He doesn't talk to us much, but when he does, we listen. We will continue to contribute to the Petersburg Project and hope to bring others on board as contributors. We appreciate all of our visitors. Together, we are putting the Siege of Richmond and Petersburg on the map where it belongs--the longest continuous battle of the American Civil War and where modern trench warfare originated. Thanks, David, Julie, and Phil.
