Regimental Histories of the Regular Army of the United States (Artillery)

Civil War Regimental Histories – the Regular Army
FORGOTTEN in many histories of the Civil War is the role of the Regular Army during the War Between the States. After the close of the Mexican War and the disbandment of the volunteer forces called out by that war, the regular troops had been gradually decreasing in numbers, and at the beginning of the Rebellion in 1861, were scattered by companies and detachments throughout the country.
The following regimental histories have been abstracted from T.F. Rodenbough’s 1896 [u]History of the Army of the United States[/u].
