The remnants of earthworks surround a grove of trees on the Battlefield at Petersburg. This is the site of Fort Gregg the last Confederate stronghold during the eight month siege at Petersburg. On April 2, 1864, savage fighting occurred here as Confederates fought to holdback a Union attack that final sealed the fate of the Rebels in this crucial battle. Seen as a forlorn hope the Confederate defense at Fort Gregg succeeded in giving commander Robert E. Lee enough time to extricate what remained of his army and escape from the City of Petersburg.
