OR XL P1 (Broadfoot Sup.) #18: Report of Captain George B. Easterly, 4th WI Btty, June 4-July 31, 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: This slightly more than one-page report by Captain George B. Easterly of the 4th Wisconsin Battery, a regular and later horse artillery unit serving with the Army of the James Cavalry, gives a day by day itinerary view of the unit’s actions from June 4 to July 31, 1864, but skips many days.  The report covers the battery’s role on June 15-16, 1864 at the Second Battle of Petersburg as well as the July 27, 1864 fighting at the First Battle of Deep Bottom.
