New Union Ordnance Returns for 3rd Quarter 1864: US Regulars, Connecticut, Delaware

by Brett Schulte on December 31, 2011 · 0 comments

After working on some Confederate Inspection reports prior to Christmas, I’ve switched gears and started transcribing National Archives Microfilm M1281, Roll 7 containing the weapons carried by Union regiments on September 30, 1864, or 3rd Quarter 1864 (July-September). These are officially known as Union Ordnance returns, and I now have available the weapons carried by the following groups of regiments at the Siege of Petersburg on September 30, 1864:

I’m slowly working my way through the rest of Roll 7 and transcribing the information for the regiments of all other states who participated in the Siege of Petersburg. Wargamers and researchers interested in specific units will find this information interesting and useful. Go check it out if you’re interested.
