Ashleigh Moody,

This is a Call To Arms for history-minded citizens! Many Union and Confederate soldiers and the citizens of the city were involved in the 9 month siege which led to the end of the Civil War. Currently, the Petersburg National Battlefield is in a struggle which may result in our losing some of our heritage.
