OR XL P1 (Broadfoot Sup.) #25: Extract of Diary of Captain John F. Heitman, 48th NC, July 1-29, 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 one-page extract from the diary of Captain John F. Heitman of the 48th North Carolina covers the month of July 1864. Heitman is fairly brief in his entries, but he gives pretty good accounts of movements of his regiment which will be useful in building an itinerary of his brigade.
Source: Duke University Archives, Duke University, exact location not listed, but I found it in the John F. Heitman Papers, 1863-1911.
Available Online?: No.
