After working on some Confederate Inspection reports prior to Christmas, I’ve switched gears and started transcribing National Archives Microfilm M1281, Roll 7 containing the weapons carried by Union regiments on September 30, 1864, or 3rd Quarter 1864 (July-September).

I’m slowly working my way through the rest of Roll 7 and transcribing the information for the regiments of all other states who participated in the Siege of Petersburg. Wargamers and researchers interested in specific units will find this information interesting and useful. Go check it out if you’re interested.
