Petersburg was the decisive battle of the Civil War and was the crucial turning point in the outcome of the war. It is currently the longest battle in American history at nine months and 27 days. See the site of the Battle of the Crater, as depicted in the movie Cold Mountain and view the crater created by one of the largest mortar shots at the time called the Dictator. Visit remains of the forts, including Fort Steadman, which was the last conflict at Petersburg. See and hear the strategy of the generals and the chronology of the war. See the berms, the trenches and how they were all dug without the help of any heavy equipment we are so fortunate to have today. Pristine and immaculately kept by the US Park Service, it is hallowed ground and a memory for lifetime.
