"Everything is as perfectly arranged as in Boston." - Pvt. R.G. Carter 22nd Massachusetts Infantry

Cannons, food, munitions, forage, even coffins-the list of goods that passed onto the waterfront before you seemed endless. Gangs of laborers-many of them former slaves-toiled constantly on the half mile of wharves here, unloading three million pounds of materiel each day. While the Confederates in Petersburg suffered severe shortages, the Union warehouses at City Point stored enough food to feed the Union army at Petersburg for thirty days.
