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.

The delays and off time with Geocites and Tripod, I cannot control, but the sites will continue. I thank all of you for your support and kindness to me. I had no idea. Again my thanks, steve

*Unit was exchanged following the meat grinder of Grant's Overland Campaign with men on the S.C. Coast and converted to Infantry. The incisive genius of wholesale death had begun. May Sam Grant roast along side the likes of John Bell Hood and all butchers. Later in the war the unit once again became artillery.
