Emery's Battery

This was part of "Waddell's Battery," and was organized at Columbus, Georgia, in November 1863. Ordered to Dalton, the record of the battery is blended with that of the Army of Tennessee during the memorable campaign of 1864. It was part of Major Waddell's battalion--Emery's, Barrett's, and Bellamy's batteries. The battery sternly confronted Wilson at Girard, and there the guns and two-thirds of the men were captured.

Captains-- W. D. Emery of Montgomery.

Lieutenants -- A. H. Burch, Jefferson Bates, M. M. Allen, R. H. Boykin, all of Russell.
