Not much information here. What did you find interesting enough to share, Tango?

The mere fact that the Confederates had a battalion of 'Siege Artillery' is interesting. I confess I didn't know that. My G-G-Grandfather commanded a battery of siege guns in the 1st Connecticut Heavy Artillery during the Peninsular Campaign.

Virginia raised several Heavy Artillery units. Some were converted into infantry while others remained artillery units until Richmond fell. The garrison of Fort Macon NC was composed of several companies of NC heavy artillery. I would not be surprised if some of the Confederate artillery units at Charleston or Mobile were heavy or siege artillery units.

I also was not aware that the Rebel Army had a Siege Artillery unit… not all of us are so wise like you my friend… (smile)

Glad you enjoyed it!.

Not wise at all, Tango. Just asking a simple question.

Actually, there were several units from Georgia called "siege artillery." As for the 28th, they fought as infantry and were present at Olustee. Several companies were sent north and fought at Petersburg, again as infantry.
