Assistant Adjutant-General.

Numbers 105. Reports of Major General Horatio G. Wright, U. S. Army, commanding Sixth Army Corps.

HEADQUARTERS SIXTH CORPS,

April 22, 1865.

COLONEL: I have the honor to submit the following report of the part taken by this corps in the operations of Sunday, the 2nd instant, which operations resulted in the evacuation of Petersburg and Richmond by the rebel Army of Northern Virginia, and the subsequent surrender on Sunday, the 9th, of what remained of that force:

On the evening of the 1st orders were received from Major-General Meade to attack at 4 a. m. the next day,
