OR XL P1 (Broadfoot Sup.) #30: Report of Lieutenant Oliver D. Cooke, 24th NC, June 15-July 4, 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: Lieutenant Oliver D. Cooke, Adjutant of the 24th North Carolina, Ransom’s Brigade, Johnson’s Division, Department of North Carolina and Southern Virginia writes a one-and-a-half-page report on his regiment’s actions in the first three weeks of the Siege of Petersburg for Colonel William J. Clarke, commanding the regiment. Most of this report focuses on the fighting on June 16-17, 1864, with very little mention of events on other days.
