|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.
