Lonely Planet review

About 25 miles south of Richmond, the little town of Petersburg played a big role in the Civil War. It was a major railway junction, providing Confederate troops and supplies. Union troops laid a 10-month siege of Petersburg in 1864-65, the longest on American soil. The Siege Museum relates the plight of civilians during the siege.
