18 Siege of Petersburg continued. Before Petersburg.
Daylight: Moved down the first line of Confederate works (captured on the 17th), and was in line of battle in the rear of the 3rd division. 11 am. formed line of battle with 32nd Mass, 21st PA Cav (dismounted), 155th PA, under command of Col E M Gregory. advanced on Confederate position Charged and captured the Suffolk (Norfolk??) and Petersburg Railroad. This is presumably the railroad cut Walter says stopped them for a moment, until they jumped into it and climbed the other side. The contemporary anonymous account says it was 40-50 feet deep, and so steep they had to cut steps; Walter describes it as 14-15 feet deep. They then faced a valley and creek, with a steep rise after the creek. The Confederates had built a strong line of breastworks along the creek, which stopped the brigade for a half hour or longer. About dusk, they moved a bit to the left, and then advanced, taking the position where the mine was later exploded. They couldn't take the next Confederate line, and had to retreat about ten yards from their furthest advance. Both the colors were shot down; Samuel [?] Sweeney was shot shortly after picking one up. Hot firing for over four hours, about 100 yards from the Confederates. The 91st was at the extreme right of the line. They were ordered to advance quietly at midnight, and then take the Confederate line with bayonets. But the Confederates attacked first, after feigning a movement to the 91st's left, which led to one officer's ordering men to cease firing. The Confederates advanced to about 20 yards from the 91st, but were driven back in about half an hour.
Charles Coates (C) rescued the body of William Miller (C) while under enemy fire; he was promoted to sgt effective this date for "meritorious conduct"
82 killed and wounded in those two engagements (nearly one-third of those present, according to Walter).
