The History of Petersburg
As a city that has seen human settlement dating as far back as 6,500 B.C., Petersburg is home to a vast collection of interesting historic sites. Pocahontas Island has been the discovery site of many prehistoric artifacts, tracing back to Native American tribes that called the area home.
Throughout modern history, Petersburg has also been a major player in some of America's most pivotal events and eras. It was the site of the longest military event of the Civil War, which stretched over nine and a half months. The city's role in the Civil War is commemorated at the Petersburg National Battlefield and the Pamplin Historical Park.
Petersburg is also the site of two Baptist churches that are an important part of African-American history. Founded in the late 18th century, the churches are among the oldest in the nation. During the civil rights movement, the churches (and others in the area) played a leading role.

For many decades, the city has been a major hub of industry for the state of Virginia, a status it still maintains today.
