Report of Major Oscar F. Hulser, Second New York Heavy Artillery, of operations March 25.1

HEADQUARTERS SECOND NEW YORK ARTILLERY,
March 26, 1865

CAPTAIN; I have the honor respectfully to report as follows the result of the operations of this regiment of yesterday:

At 9.30 a. m. I was ordered by Lieutenant-Colonel Brown, acting assistant adjutant-general, to move out to the then picket-line in front of this brigade and report to Colonel G. W. Scott, brigade commander, which I did. After receiving instructions from him I moved at once and remained in position until ordered by him (Colonel Scott) to advance my right to the support of the then picket-line. According to orders I then moved to the position indicated, and subsequently took position on the right of First Brigade, where we encountered the enemy in force. After participating in the repulse of the enemy in two separate charges made by them upon our lines, we were relieved at 10 p. M., and returned back to camp. The casualties in the command were 1 commissioned officer and 6 enlisted men wounded, with 4 enlisted men missing.

I have the honor to be, very respectfully,

O. F. HULSER,
Major, Commanding Second New York Artillery.

Captain WILLIAM McCALLISTER.
Actg. Asst. Adjt. General, 1st Brig. 1st Div., 2nd Army Corps.
