in the Civil War

Regimental History
First Heavy Artillery. Col., William Colville; Lieut. -Col., Luther L. Baxter; Majs., Orlando Eddy, C. P. Haffelfinger, David Misner. This regiment was organized in the summer of 1864, mustered in by companies and ordered to Chattanooga in the winter of 1864-65. It was composed of twelve companies, each containing 140 men, besides the officers. It was placed in charge of the heavy guns and forts at Chattanooga, a responsible position, as it was thought Hood would endeavor to retake the city. It remained there until the war closed and was mustered out by companies in June and Sept., 1865.
