Numbers 316. Report of Lieutenant Cornelius Gillett, First Connecticut Heavy Artillery, Ordnance Officer, Artillery Reserve.

The train was parked in a field to the right of the road, and I immediately commenced supplying ammunition to the batteries both of this command and, by General Hunt's direction, to those of other corps. On the evening of the 2d, I received orders to move to a field to the right and rear of the position I then occupied, which I did, and was kept busy the entire night sending out wagons and issuing to batteries.
