View of Battery 5 of the Dimmock Line. One of the many earthen walled forts constructed by the Confederate forces in the line surrounding Petersburg. On June 15, 1864 at 7:45 PM the Union 18th Corps attacked and broke the Confederate's line here. Though there were few Confederate forces in front of the Union attackers Gen. William Smith stopped the attack to await re-enforcements. Had he continued, Petersburg and Richmond (?) would have been taken then

13" seacoast mortar similar to the 13" mortar used by Gen. Grant's forces during siege of Petersburg. The mortar required 14 pounds of black powder to throw a 225 pound ball 2 miles into Petersburg. The ball was fused to explode at tree level and was filled with 11 pounds of powder
