all of this public property to exposure or destruction. Even the new administration of President Lincoln was for a time very circumspect. When directing (April 4, 1861) Commodore McCauley to put the shipping and public property in condition to be moved and placed beyond danger should it become necessary, he was warned to take no steps that would give needless alarm. Meanwhile, the Virginia Confederates had proposed to seize or destroy all this property. As early as the night of April 16, two light boats of 80 tons each were sunk in the channel of the Elizabeth River, below Norfolk, to prevent the government vessels leaving the stream. The government, alarmed, sent Capt. Hiram Paulding from Washington with instructions for McCauley to lose no time in arming the Merrimac, and in getting the Plymouth and Dolphin beyond danger; to have the Germantown in condition to be towed out, and to put the more valuable property, ordnance and stores, on shipboard, so that they could at any mo
Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Petersburg. (search)
Petersburg opened on the Confederate lines from Appomattox to Hatcher's Run. Wright, Parke, and Ord, holding the intrenchments at Petersburg, were ordered to follow up the bombardment with an assault. The bombardment was kept up until 4 A. M. (April 2), and the assault began at daybreak. Parke carried the outer line of the Confederate works in his front, but was checked at an inner line. Wright drove everything before him to the Boydton plank-road, where he turned to the left towards Hatch so ended the really last blow struck for the defence of Richmond by Lee's army. Gen. A. P. Hill, one of Lee's best officers, was shot dead while reconnoitring. Lee now perceived that he could no longer hold Petersburg or the capital with safety to his army. At 10.30 on Sunday morning (April 2) he telegraphed to the government at Richmond: My lines are broken in three places; Richmond must be evacuated this evening. Then Lee's troops withdrew from Petersburg, and the struggle there ended.
