I keep hearing that Butler's forces actually used the weapons, but can anyone point to a specific first person account of this? He doesn't mention it in any of his reports, and no one in the Army of the James seems to have known about it. I did find one letter from a soldier in the 7th CT that described being there when Butler did a demonstration with one of the guns, but nothing about the guns actually being fire in anger.
