Otey Light Artillery was organized at Richmond, Virginia, in March 1862. It became part of the 13th Battalion Virginia Artillery but for some time operated as an independent command. The unit served in western Virginia and, assigned to J. F. King's Battalion sustained 14 casualties during the Kanawha Valley operations. In December the battery contained 3 officers and 69 men and was attached to the Department of Western Virginia and East Tennessee. Later it participated in the Knoxville Campaign, then was ordered to join the Army of Northern Virginia. It was assigned to W. H.
