SOPO 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 fairly short report of half a page, Captain John E. Burton gives a day-by-day itinerary style list of casualties in the 11th New York Battery during its first week plus at the Siege of Petersburg. Nothing else is mentioned other than casualties.
