HEADQUARTERS ARTILLERY RESERVE,

Culpeper Court-House, Va.,

October 3, 1863.

GENERAL: I have the honor to inclose herewith a statement of the operations of the Artillery Reserve, from the date of the battle of Gettysburg until the command reached Warrenton Junction, which I had previously omitted. I also forward a copy of a report of First Lieutenant G. V. Weir, commanding Battery C. Fifth U. S. Artillery, for the action of Gettysburg. This report is but just received, a circumstance which has prevented the services of the battery from being suitably mentioned in my own report. I would respectfully call attention kin it to the names of non-commissioned officers and soldiers whose meritorious conduct is specially noticed.
