The War of the Rebellion: A
Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies - part of
Cornell University's Making of America Collection. (Scroll down the page to find the
link to the official records). This is the place to go for all the Official
Information about the War. The records consist of 70 volumes, some volumes
consisting of several parts. The Gettysburg Reports are contained in Volume 27,
Parts I, II and III. The first two volumes include official reports from both Union and
Confederate officers, beginning at the start of the Campaign on June 3, 1863. Part
III includes correspondence. It takes a bit of searching to find what you're
looking for, but each part has its own index. It may take a bit of searching
back and forth to get the information you may want for a particular individual 's actions
on July 2, for example, as opposed to any actions taken before or after the July 1-3
period. Once you get the hang of it, though, it's worth the effort. Good luck
and be patient.
