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: William C. Harvey of the 18th Virginia, a regiment in Pickett’s Division, First Corps, Army of Northern Virginia, writes a fairly detailed nearly day-by-day itinerary style account of his regiment’s movements and actions from June 13-25, 1864. During this time the unit moved from the Cold Harbor battlefield to the vicinity of Malvern Hill, and finally to Bermuda Hundred, where they were engaged in numerous skirmishes.
