Linda’s Battlefield Trips

Linda Walcroft over at “The View from Squirrel Ridge” has posted several dispatches from a recent trip to the Richmond-Petersburg area viewing sites related to the Siege of Petersburg.   As usual Linda backs up her observations with plenty of quality photographs.  This recent trip is another battlefield walk with Dr. Charles P. Poland, of Northern Virginia Community College, Annandale Campus.  Previous trips are also documented on her Civil War Field Trips page.

If you are not familiar with Linda’s work, she covers a wide range of topics on her blog.  But another attraction for me are the photos of the flora and fauna of the Shenandoah Valley.  Her posts often remind me there’s more to this world than just military history.  She’s also a contributor at HMDB. In addition to her own entries, she has “cleaned up” several markers with better photos and more accurate locations.

So if you are interested in the Petersburg battlefields, particularly a perspective on how the sites look today, I’d recommend checking Linda’s recent posts.  Or if you like seasonal photos of “The Valley,” you may want to add her site to your RSS feed list.

  1. Thanks for the mention, Craig! I’m still working on my Petersburg to Appomattox trip photos, and will follow them with some posts on Fisher’s Hill and Cedar Creek.
    I refer to from time to time… it is a great resource!
