upon the intrenchments occupied by the enemy in front of the captured line of works. It is scarcely necessary to add that our troops, after capturing a line of rifle-pits, were repulsed with considerable loss, the Rebels being now so strongly intrenched Our move on the 19th was one in connection with Barlow's, Birney's, and Gibbon's divisions, which took post near Anderson's Mills on the Ny. Owing to the losses in action and the expiration of the term of service of many regiments of Mott's division (4th), it had become so reduced in numbers that I issued an order on the 13th of May consolidating it into a brigade, and assigning it to Birney's division.— Hancock's Official Report. Here orders were received to be in readiness to march at dark towards Bowling Green; and it was while preparations were making for this movement that the corps was called upon to aid in checking a bold dash against our right flank. Gen. Ewell, who was undoubtedly still smarting at Hancock's sudden s
f the Second, was ordered to swing forward the left wing of the corps, so as to envelop the right flank of the enemy. This movement was making by the divisions of Mott and Barlow, who were pivoting on Gibbon's Division, which held the right. Just as the operation was nearly completed, a part of Hill's corps (Mahone's division) pancock concludes his report of operations at Deep Bottom as follows: I continued holding the line during the 29th with the remaining divisions of my corps, Mott's division had been ordered to report to Gen. Ord, the day before. Barge's brigade of the Tenth Corps, This corps was now commanded by Gen. Birney, who had beenssion to the enemy that we were withdrawing from Deep Bottom, and to induce them to come out of their works and attack. The ruse failed. At 8 o'clock P. M., Gen. Mott was ordered to Petersburg to relieve the Ninth Corps from the intrenchments. Immediately after dark (20th), I withdrew my command, in accordance with orders,
t was speedily repulsed. A second and more vigorous attack met with a similar fate. About this time Hancock received a despatch from Meade, notifying him that Mott had been ordered to send down all his available force, and stating further that he thought the enemy was about to assume the offensive against him, or was about tothe Plank Road, I despatched a staff officer (Capt. Entee) to conduct it up. Arrangements were made as to its disposition. About 5 o'clock, a staff officer from Gen. Mott (Maj. Willian) reported the arrival of seven hundred men of Gen. Mott's Division at the forks of the road where the Reams Station leaves the Plank Road. These tGen. Mott's Division at the forks of the road where the Reams Station leaves the Plank Road. These troops would have been immediately ordered up, but Maj. Willian stated that before — he could possibly get back with the order Wilcox's Division would have passed, so that nothing would be gained. Orders were therefore given to Col. McAllister, commanding the force, to hold well down the Plank Road in anticipation of any attempt of
rd anew. At this time, a body of infantry, A brigade of Mott's Division. having advanced by our left down to the woods iom the woods about 4 o'clock P. M., and fell upon a part of Mott's Division. Their point of issuance was near the junction he foregoing: Gibbon's Division, commanded by Egan, and Mott's Division were withdrawn from the intrenchments on the mor Road for the purpose of driving the enemy across the Run. Mott's Division was put in motion for the White Oak Road. and alry sent down to relieve Egan in order that he might follow Mott. At this juncture, 1 P. M., Meade ordered a halt. Egane necessary preparations. . . . . . McAllister's Brigade of Mott's Division was still in line of battle facing the approache in our prospective line of march. The remaining brigade of Mott's Division, It must not be understood from this that the was in position on a secondary ridge, about midway between Mott and Egan . . . . . Constant firing had been heard on my rig
n of the Sixth Corps at dusk. Our division (Third) moved to Hatcher's Run on the 9th, in a terrible storm of snow and rain, as a supporting column to Warren and Mott, who had gone still further to the left to destroy the Weldon Railroad. . . . . .—History of Tenth Regiment Vt. Vols. With the inception of this movement the weath, further testimony will show. The following is an extract from a letter written by Gen. McAllister to a friend in New Jersey. The General commanded a brigade of Mott's (Third) Division, and tool the brunt of the Rebel assault. He says: The distance now between my Brigade and Gen. Smythe's First Brigade on my left across ds distant, eagerly following up, when Battery K, which seemed to possess the faculty of being in the right place at the right time, and the supporting infantry of Mott's (Third) Division (De Trobriand's Brigade), —both posted at the crossing of the Vaughan Road over the Run,—gave them such a warm reception that they hastily retir<
ing the two by a heavy breastwork, and extending the same on their left to the Run, and on their right around to the mill-pond above the bridge. During this day Gen. Mott with his Third Division attempted to carry these works but without success. Thus far we had taken no part in the fray, With the exception of B, First Rho 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 forwn 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 Plan
Staff. Yet here fell Lieut. Henry H. Granger mortally wounded, here privates Alfred C. Billings and Mike Farrell were wounded and here a piece-wheel was shattered by a Rebel shell. The Battery, however, did not fire. At or near this very spot stood the guns of the First New Hampshire and Tenth Massachusetts, Sunday morning, April 2nd, 1865, and shelled the two forts on Burgess' farm; and later our hearts thrilled with joy inexpressible to see the flag going over the works in the hands of Mott's division of the Second Corps. The rifle pits thrown up by this corps along the eastern side of the Boydton Road are still visible, but the last one disappears as we speed along and soon after high noon we have reached Dinwiddie Court House. Old Fort Stevenson. The Williams House was one of the many which came in the way of the Union lines in the movements of the army before Petersburg. The Sixth Corps built high breastworks near it. These the 2nd Corps occupied for a time. On the
