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: This one-page report by Lieutenant James Stewart covers the movements and actions of Battery B, 4th U. S. Artillery.  It is a day by itinerary style report which concentrates on June 13-19, 1864, including action on June 18 at the second Battle of Petersburg, and then immediately skips to July 30, 1864 and a brief mention of being engaged during the Battle of the Crater.
