Brown's Battery
In Response To: Re: oops! ()

I nearly forgot to mention Brown's Arkansas Battery. Capt. Louis W. Brown was ordered to command a battery to be organized from details from the infantry regiments of McBride's brigade. Almost nothing is known of this battery -- named the "Newton Artillery" in honor of Col. Robert Crittenden Newton -- as no muster rolls have ever been located. I have put together a roster of sorts taken from the muster rolls of the regiments which detailed men to the battery, but even those are pretty sketchy. As a matter of interest, here's the order to Captain Brown --

Headquarters Trans-Mississippi District,
Little Rock, Ark., August 1, 1862.

Special Orders, No. 42.

Capt. L. W. Brown will report immediately to Brig. Gen. J. H. McBride, at his headquarters at or near Batesville, to command a company of artillery for service with his brigade. General McBride will, if he finds it necessary, make details from his infantry, to form such a company, of one hundred and twenty men.

By command of Major-General Hindman,
R. C. NEWTON,
Chief of Staff.
