These are images of the Federal armies mastering the siege of Petersburg. Many more photos downloaded and linked. Four-photo panorama (likely by Capt. Russell) identified and placed on the map. Much more work to be done .... City Point
Many thanks for the great work you are doing. I am especially glad that you have found photographs from Medford Historical Society & Museum's (MHSM) collection to be useful for your efforts. Please correct the attribution for the second of the 'stitched together' photographs: it is from MHSM's collection, not Boston Athenaeum's. The final batch of MHSM's Civil War photos will be posted in the next few weeks and includes two more of City Point: MHS.1948.1.3632 " Military Rail Road camp, City Point, Virginia" and MHS.1948.1.3643 "City Point after explosion of ordinance barges"

Jay, thanks so much for your comment. I will correct the attribution that you suggest. There seem to be duplicates floating around out there, but we are happy to give your collection recognition that it deserves. We look forward to your future postings. An thanks for you support. DL
