Other official reports destroyed.

The other official reports for this campaign were copied into the letter-book at brigade Headquarters. This book was destroyed at [245] Appomattox Courthouse, and there are no copies of them in existence that I am aware of.

During the time that I was absent, wounded — less than three months--the brigade, commanded successively by Colonels Barry and Speer, and Brigadier-General Conner, took an active part in the following engagements:

Riddle's shop, June 13; action three miles south-east of Petersburg, June 22; action in front of Petersburg, June 23; Gravel Hill, July 28; Fussell's Mills, on Darbytown road, August 16-18; Reames's Station, August 25.

When I returned to my brigade, I was informed by Captain E. J. Hale, Jr., who was my Adjutant-General, and many other officers, that it behaved in all of these fights with its usual gallantry.
