Letter: Greg Burton's article on Cobbs Hall
Marcus Albin writes:
I live in the middle of the original plantation property. I back up to the Appomattox River and just 200 feet from the Cobbs cemetery. My wife and I walk the trails daily. We often wonder where the Cobbs house stood and we only guess of a particular flat piece of land overlooking the marsh and Port Walthall. In my back yard some one hundred yards port side was a pontoon bridge carrying troops and gear across the Appomattox to Cobbs Island and then on to Petersburg. 1/4 of a mile further up river is Point of Rocks which staged one of the largest civil war hospitals during the war. If memory serves, there were two tents approx. 100 yards each carrying for the soldier's needs.Comments re: Local History: Thomas Burton and Cobbs Plantation, VA
