OR XL P1 (Broadfoot Sup.) #20: Account of Lieutenant Colonel William Wallace, 2nd SC, June-December 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: Colonel William Wallace of the 2nd South Carolina Infantry, Kershaw’s Brigade, gives a brief, vague, and wholly unsatisfactory account of his regiment’s movements during the Siege of Petersburg. Note that this account was originally published in the pages of the Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 7. Also note that I’ve published Wallace’s account of the campaigns of 1864-65 in full.
