I have a quetion. Were there 2 batteries known a Bradford's Battery? I have found reference to the Confederate Guards Artillery known as Bradford's. I have also found the one you mention, Co. F, 1st Miss. light Artillery, which served at Port Hudson and as you say was at Brookhaven on November 18, 1864. From what I have read the battery suffered heavy casualties at Brookhaven. Is it possible the battery did not return to duty as a unit? The Confederate Guards(Bradford's) Artillery also ends its history in the autumn of 1864 at Weldon Railroad. Ironic isn't it?
