No. 44. Report of Lieutenant Colonel William Glenny, Sixty-fourth New York Infantry, of operations February 5-7.1

HEADQUARTERS SIXTY-FOURTH NEW YORK VOLUNTEERS,
February 13, 1865

In compliance with circular of 12th instant from brigade headquarters, I have the honor to report that on Sabbath afternoon of the

5th instant, in obedience to orders from the brevet brigadier-general commanding, the regiment proceeded in the direction of the Hatcher’s Run, and were assigned position on the left of the brigade, joining the troops of the Third Division, behind works hastily constructed by other troops near the Tucker house, where they remained without being engaged, and participated in the operations only by strengthening their works, building abatis, slashing timber, furnishing details for guards, picket, &c.

I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

WILLIAM GLENNY,
Lieutenant-Colonel, Commanding Regiment.

Lieutenant J. F. CRAIN,
Acting Assistant Adjutant-General, Fourth Brigade.
