Hope that passes...Pburg is one of the places where my Great Great Grandfather fought. I use a restored photogravure image of him as my avatar. Pvt. Abel M. Crow, Macon Light Artillery....although it is referred to as Ells' battery in O'Rielly's book on the Petersburg campaign.

My G-Grandfather also fought there.  I do wish I had a picture of him.

I'm very fortunate to have several pics of Abel...unfortunately none of them are from the war-time era.

NPS will have some locations, and you will be able to find some here.

Good luck.  I am tracing the 52nd Va. which my G-Grandfather fought with.

Good luck.
