OR XL P1 (Broadfoot Sup.) #51: Extract from Abstract Report of Colonel William J. Hoke, 38th NC, June 14-25, 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: In this slightly less than one-page report, Colonel William J. Hoke of the 38th North Carolina records his regiment’s movements and actions in mid-June while the Second Battle of Petersburg was raging to the south. He then mentions his letter of resignation, tendered on June 14 and accepted on June 18, 1864, at which point he left the Siege of Petersburg for good. This regiment was part of Scales’ Brigade, Wilcox’s Division, Third Corps, Army of Northern Virginia.
