  1. Not originally listed on unit homepage, but listed on September 8
  2. There seems to be some confusion as to this date in Dyer. Some pages reference September 6, and some reference September 8. The 176th New York Infantry appears under September 8 (as it is listed on its homepage), but there is also a September 6 referenced in the Virginia battle index.
