CannonOur Battle animations show troop movements as they occurred in 1864 in Chesterfield County, Virginia. Our thanks to Robert Forman, Major, U.S. Army (Ret), author of the Bermuda Hundred Tour Guide book, for his hard work on presenting the campaign in a graphic view. These are excellent animations. Please Note:  For the animated maps, once on the  map page, you can click on the icon at the bottom right of the page to make the presentation larger.  


Civil War Tour Guide Book The Bermuda Hundred Campaign Tour Guide Book tells (with maps,photographs and site battle descriptions) the pivotal role that Chesterfield County played during the last year of the Civil War, a role often overshadowed by bigger battles fought at the same time in Virginia.  On sale now at the Magnolia Grange Gift Shop - Go here for more information

Bermuda Hundred Campaign Battle Animations


We are grateful to Chesterfield County Civil War Historians George Fickett, Scott Williams and Robert Forman for their extensive research and documentation of our Civil War sites.  Their efforts have accuarately recorded the events that occurred here.  Too many books, maps, brochures and Civil war tours have overlooked the Bermuda Hundred Campaign.  The animations will provide the reader with a view of actual troop movements.
