Rivers' Battery, Arkansas Light Artillery

Provence's-Humphrey's-Rivers' Battery was organized in the summer of 1861 with men from Fort Smith, Arkansas. The unit was engaged at Elkhorn Tavern, then moved east of the Mississippi River. After being involved in the Kentucky Campaign, it was assigned to McNairs' Brigade and later J. W. Eldridge's Battalion of Artillery, Army of Tennessee. It saw action at Murfreesboro, Chickamauga, and Chattanooga. In December, 1863, the company was ordered to Atlanta where its guns and equipment were redistributed and the men assigned to other artillery commands. Its captains were John T. Humphrey, David Provence, and John W. Rivers.
