This company was organized at Mobile, December
1861 and remained there and at Columbus, Miss., till September
1862. The battery was engaged at Corinth and Hatchee, with small
loss at the latter. During the winter that followed, the battery
operated in north Mississippi. It was part of the ill-fated garrison
of Vicksburg, where it lost largely in casualties, and was captured.
When exchanged, the men were assigned to Barrett's, (Missouri)
battery, and joined the Army of Tennessee. During the Dalton-Atlanta
campaign, Barrett's battery in a battalion commanded by Major
Waddell of Russellwas constantly engaged, and lost considerably.
Ordered to Columbus, it took part in the battle of Girard, and
most of the men, and all the guns, were there captured.
