OR XL P1 (Broadfoot Sup.) #4: Report of Lieutenant Colonel Thomas R. Allcock, 4th NYHA, June 13-30, 18641

Image of Official Records, Volume XL, Part 1 and Broadfoot Supplement to the ORs, Volume 7SOPO Editor’s Note: The Broadfoot Supplement to the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies is rare and not sold in single volumes.  As a courtesy to researchers, I’m making available summaries of the reports contained in this set relevant to the Siege of Petersburg.

Summary: In this slightly more than one page report, Lieutenant Colonel Thomas R. Allcock, commanding the 4th New York Heavy Artillery, gives a day by day itinerary style report of his regiment’s movements and actions in the latter half of June 1864, just as the Siege of Petersburg was beginning.  The regiment was first part of the Artillery Brigade of the Second Corps and was later (on June 23, 1864, apparently) attached to Gibbon’s Division of the same parent unit.  This report describes what was happening to the 4th NYHA at the Second Battle of Petersburg, June 16-18, 1864 as well as the Battle of Jerusalem Plank Road, June 22-23, 1864. The regiment ended June in a line of rifle pits they had erected west of Jerusalem Plank Road in the wake of the eponymous battle.
