Burnside's Expedition and beyond
The Museum of the Albemarle is trying to identify the two Confederate soldiers in the photos below. If you recognize them, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Chris M. Perry from Hobbsville has been very helpful with grave photos and information. I got an unexpected assist from my sister, of all people! (She has no interest in the Civil War but is very interested in geneology.)

I made a trip to Richmond to visit the Virginia Historical Society archives. I knew I would find Capt. Charles Dimmock's description and map of the defenses he designed for Roanoke Island. I Knew I would find I knew I would find Lt. Wright's diary entries concerning the defenses built at Oregon Inlet. What I was not expecting was a diagram of the defenses he laid out and built.
