Artillery, Third Corps, Army of Northern Virginia1

September 1, 1864

The Confederate Army of Northern Virginia produced inspection reports at approximately monthly intervals late in the Civil War.  Luckily, many of these reports have been preserved and are available on microfilm from the National Archives and Records Association. I have produced transcriptions of the key information from these reports. See the bottom of this page for freely downloadable transcriptions of most of these reports. This transcription is copyrighted by Brett Schulte and may not be distributed, changed, or reproduced in any manner without the written consent of the transcriber.

  1. Confederate Inspection Report 12-P-17: Artillery, 3rd Corps, ANV, September 1, 1864; Inspection Reports and Related Records Received By the Inspection Branch in the Confederate Adjutant and Inspector General’s Office. (National Archives Microfilm Publication M935, Roll 10: Inspection Reports P-12 – 39-P-24); War Department Collection of Confederate Records, Record Group 109; National Archives Building, Washington, D.C
  2. SOPO Editor’s Note: This number appears to be incorrect. There are 1,969 officers and men PFD if you add the battalion PFDs together, leaving a discrepancy of 22, which is usually the staffs of the various leaders.  This number should be less than 1,991 because “effectives” does not typically count commissioned officers. I did not have a typo here.  This is the way the inspector wrote these numbers.
