Petersburg, VA has played a huge role involving the transportation of goods and services throughout history ever since it was founded in 1635. The location on the Appomattox River helped to boost the shipping industry during the colonization of Virginia. The emergence of the Petersburg Railroad in 1830s also helped to boost commercial activities during this time. This railroad was the precursor to the modern-day CSX transportation system. Several other railroad systems met in Petersburg which made the city a key place of entry for Union soldiers to capture the confederate capital of Richmond. The area saw many months of trench warfare and much of this land is preserved as Petersburg National Battlefield.
Petersburg is still a major focal point for the transportation industry with the network of major highways and both CSX and NS rail systems.
