Regimental History
Tenth Independent Battery Light Artillery. Capts., Hamilton B. White, Francis Seaman, John R. Crain; First Lieuts, William F. Bradwell, Ambrose A. Blount, Edward Grosskopff, William L. Newcomb, Joseph B. Gage, James Gilmore ; Second Lieuts., George Kleder, Lanson Zane, Samuel A. Galbreath, Joseph C. Bontecou. This battery was mustered into service on March 3, 1862, at Camp Dennison, to serve for three years. It was rapidly armed and equipped and was ordered to St. Louis, Mo. From there it was moved to Mississippi and in the battle of Corinth in October was particularly conspicuous. The year that followed was devoted to marching, countermarching, guard duty, etc., and then, the members having reenlisted as veterans, a furlough home was given them. With ranks recruited the battery returned to the front and in June, 1864, joined Sherman's army at Acworth, Ga. It took position at the front and with the exception of July 4 was engaged every day for a month, most of the time in front of Kennesaw mountain, but most severely at Nickajack creek. On the expiration of its term of service the original members, except veterans, were mustered out and the organization composed of veterans and recruits was retained in service until July 17, 1865, when it was mustered out at Camp Dennison, Ohio.
