Standefer's Company

Stanford's Battery was organized during the fall of 1861 and soon moved to Tennessee. After fighting at Shiloh, the unit was involved in the Kentucky Campaign, then joined the Army of Tennessee. It was assigned to M. Smith's and Eldridge's Battalion of Artillery, fought with the army from Murfreesboro to Atlanta, and was part of Hood's operations in Tennessee. The battery lost 4 killed and 13 wounded of the 131 engaged at Shiloh and sustained 3 casualties at Perryville, 10 at Murfreesboro, and 4 at Chickamauga. In December, 1863, it totaled 93 officers and men, and in April, 1864, there were 72 present for duty. However, the company was captured in the Battle of Nashville. Captain Thomas J. Sanford was in command.
