made but slight use of this book. The lapse of time has shown the survivors of the Battery that this omission on the part of their historian was a mistake; that many of them could have been materially aided in establishing their claims for a pension had these records been available, and that other historical material omitted should have found place in the volume. Acting on this idea at the last meeting of the Battery Association a committee was chosen, consisting of John D. Billings, Maj. Milbrey Green and Lieut. Charles E. Pierce and given full power to print the contents of the Morning Report Book with such other valuable historical material as seemed desirable. That committee, after careful deliberation, decided it to be the part of wisdom to publish these Morning Reports, adding to them the history written many years ago carefully revised and corrected with its roster made accurate and complete. The committee also voted to include in the volume such portraits of members as ca
rkness, at 9 o'clock, to the little settlement of Greenwich, where we bivouacked for the night. Daylight of the ensuing morning gave us a better view of our surroundings. There was one large house located at some distance from the road, with quite extensive grounds about it. Around the estate the following notice was posted: British property. Protected by order of Gen. Meade. The same notice was conspicuously posted on nearly every house in the settlement. Later, we learned that a Mr. Green, who owned the large house, making it his summer residence and living at Savannah in the winter, was a man of means and influence, and instead of this being a knot of British settlers, as at first appeared, the other people living here had persuaded the above gentleman to have the same safeguard thrown about their premises as his own. As early as 6 o'clock A. M., we were again on the move, our line of march this day taking us across the plains of Manassas and a. portion of the old Bull

and the Tenth Massachusetts Battery until 9 A. M., when it was observed that the enemy was evacuating the works. Col. Hazard's Report. Our shells were directed at the artillery inside the forts, already alluded to as occupying our old battle-ground. The Rebels replied briskly for a time, but at 8.30 A. M. were reported to be evacuating, whereupon Mott's Division was immediately pressed forward to the attack, and in a few moments the stars and stripes were seen waving over the forts. Lieut. Green had gone forward on his own initiative and was there when the infantry came up and so has been given credit for being first to enter this part of the line. About noon we drew out, limbered up, and followed the infantry columns through the Rebel works. Mott and Hays were ordered to move on the Boydton Plank Road towards Petersburg. Gen. Humphreys' Report. B, First Rhode Island Artillery, was brought up to Plank Road and ordered with Tenth Massachusetts Battery to report to Gen
its rear the engineers decided to locate a fort, and Fort Stevenson, the largest and strongest fort in the line, was built As the Williams House screened its outlook it was pulled down. Seen in outline against the sky the fort suggests the battlements of a castle. It is a magnificent relic, nearly as perfect as in war time. In it our four Parrotts took position on retiring from Hatcher's Run. Here we lay when Capt. Sleeper returned from leave of absence on account of wounds. Here Lieut. Milbrey Green joined us on being commissioned into the Battery. Here we heard the sad announcement that Gen. Hancock was to leave us. Here Barney Oliver cut off three of his toes. Near it is the identical spot where the fragments of the company camped that survived the battle of Reams Station. Fort Morton and Battery XIV.
