OR XL P1 (Broadfoot Sup.) #12: Report of Captain Patrick Hart, 15th NY Btty, June 12-July 13, 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: This slightly over one-page report by Captain Patrick Hart covers the movements and actions of the 15th New York Battery in the latter half of June until mid-July 1864. The battery was engaged on June 18, 1864 at the Second Battle of Petersburg. Not every day is covered, but only changes of position and some casualties are noted.
