OR XL P1 (Broadfoot Sup.) #7: Report of Lieutenant Aaron F. Walcott, 3rd MA Btty, June 13-July 30, 18641
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 one-page report, Lieutenant Aaron F. Walcott provides a day by day itinerary style look at the 3rd Massachusetts Battery in mid-June 1864 during and just after the Second Battle of Petersburg, and then skips immediately to the July 30, 1864 Battle of the Crater. He briefly lists his slight number of casualties at the end.
