18th Virginia Heavy Artillery Battalion, Company B morning reports
Scope and Content Note
This collection consists of 1 volume of bound morning reports. The entries for December 1861 through June of 1863 were made by officers of the 26th Pennsylvania Infantry, United States Army but those made July 1863 through April 1865 were made by officers of Company B, 18th Virginia Battalion of Heavy Artillery, Confederate States of America. It appears that the volume was confiscated by the Confederates, perhaps at the Battle of Gettysburg where both companies fought. The words regiment, colonel, and United are crossed out and replaced by battalion, major, and Confederate, respectively.
