We are moving, hopefully for the last time. My thanks to Traci Parsons who has worked so hard to move these pages and give them a new look and complete make over. She is a wonderful friend and I am extremely grateful for her hours of hard work.

Moving is a long and difficult process. Hopefully the Sixteenth site will follow shortly to the new address. My thanks for your patience, remember to bookmark the new address. This site will remain but will no longer be updated.

You mention several books for additional reading... omitted are E P Alexander's "Military Memoirs of a Confederate" and his "Fighting for the Confederacy" and there are numerous magazine articles you might want to mention (one in "Battles and Leaders" on the "The Great Artillery Charge at Gburg", the recent series of three articles in "North & South" mag by Rich Rollins on "The [Conf] Guns at Gburg", an aritcle on "Anteitam Artillery" in Blue and Grey mag, and several articles in "Gettysburg Magazine" over the years. Also Robert Krick's book on "Parker's Virginia Battery" is helpful since the unit served literally next to some of the SC units in various battles (Sharpsburg, Gburg,...)

Finally, the Brooks Artillery flag is also mentioned in "Flags of Civil War South Carolina" by Glenn Dedmondt as being in Charleston Museum (p. 152).

*See Vol. V, U.D.C. Recollections for addtional information. I am unclear on the command structure and assignments of this unit. It appears from Cannoneers in Gray that Waites has an Artillery Battalion and Capt. R.B. Waddell (page 146, Cannoneers in Gray) takes command of the South Carolina Battery. Waites does not appear to have been promoted to the rank of Major (Krick). Waites' Horse clearly carried eight rifles into Tennessee under the command of the gallant Hood.(Page 168, Cannoneers in Gray) Sword does not list them in his order of battle in Embrace the Angry Wind. There in no mention of them in Autumn of Glory.The unit is not mentioned in Crute or Sifakis (S.C. and Ga). Ripley makes no mention of Company B, Palmetto Light Artillery. It is very possible that sections of this unit served in both places. Artillery Sections were often divided this way. In this case, a section could be with the Army of Tennessee and a section serving as Heavy Artillery in Defense of Charleston Harbor, but this is specualtion on my part, speculation of a most cavalier type.

Culpepper's Light Artillery
With Gracious thanks to Camille Corte and Norman Nicolson

This unit known also as Company C, Palmetto Light Artillery, joined the Palmetto Light Artillery Battalion in November of 1861.Company C was assigned to the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana, in the Spring of 1863 and attached to McNair's Arkansas Brigade during Johnson's attempt to relieve Vickburg from Jackson Mississippi. The unit was then sent to the Army of Tennessee for the fighting at Chickamauga. It returned to the Department of Alabama, Mississipi, and East Louisiana. The unit fought at Charleston, Jackson, and Chickamauga, then served at Mobile and surrendered in May, 1865. The unit was involved in the fighting in the Mobile area where Lt. J.L. Moses was killed in action in one of the last battles of the war.

To the Order of Battle, Mobile Campaign

*Listed as French's Division in Union reports of the Confederate Order of Battle.
