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

Hart's Battery or Halsey's Company and Walter's Battery are two different elements of the Washington Artillery. If you have more information, I would appreicate it. Hart's Battery served with Stuart in the Army of Northern Virginia. and Walter's in the Defense of South Carolina. Hart's Battery also served as Company A of the Hampton Legion Artillery under Stephen D. Lee, who was Captain of the unit. It is also called Lee's Company on occasion in its very early history during the war.
