This company was organized at Norfolk, Va., January
1862, and the men were from Montgomery. The majority of the men
had served a year as a company in the Third Alabama Infantry.
Some months later, the battery was sent to North Carolina, and
was on garrison duty on the coast. It assisted in the capture
of Plymouth with small loss, and blew up Fort Branch when the
Confederate line at Petersburg was broken, and tried to join Gen.
Johnston. The battery disbanded at Ridgeway, N. C., April 1865.
