Goochland Light Artillery, Virginia
Goochland Light Artillery was organized in May, 1861, with men recruited in Goochland County. Serving in western Virginia it fought at Carnifex Ferry, then moved to Tennessee. Here the company was captured at Fort Donelson in February, 1862. When exchanged, it returned to Virginia and was assigned to the Department of Richmond. The battery served as heavy artillery at Chaffin's Bluff until February, 1864, when it was converted to infantry. During March or April the unit was broken up. Captains John H. Guy and Jonathan Talley were in command.
