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 two-and-a-half-page report of Brigadier General Henry A. Wise covers his brigade’s movements and actions on June 15-16, 1864, with an emphasis on the June 15 fighting at the Second Battle of Petersburg. Wise goes into great detail, and this source is a must have for authors writing about Second Petersburg.
