Numbers 221. Report of Colonel John C. Tidball, Fourth New York Heavy Artillery, commanding Artillery Brigade, of operations October 27 – 28.1

HDQRS. ARTILLERY BRIGADE, NINTH ARMY CORPS,
October 29, 1864.

MAJOR: I have the honor to report that soon after daylight on the 27th instant two batteries of this corps (Rogers’ and Roemer’s) moved with the corps about two miles to the westward of Fort Cummings, and remained there until the forenoon of the subsequent day, when they returned to their former position within the works. Owing to the wooded nature of the country, neither of the batteries could take any active part in the operations. I have no casualties to report.

I am, major, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

JNO. C. TIDBALL,

Colonel and Chief of Artillery.

Major P. M. LYDIG,

Assistant Adjutant-General, Ninth Army Corps.
