HISTORY OF THE 1ST MN LIGHT ARTILLERY
The 1st Minnesota Light Artillery Battery took part in the Battle of Shiloh, Siege of Vicksburg, the Atlanta Campaign and Sherman's March to the Sea. They served in the 4th Division of the 17th U.S. Army Corps.
On 5 March 1864, Captain Clayton exchanged the old guns, two 12-pound howitzers, and two 6-pound rifled guns, caliber 3.67, for four new rifled 3-inch Rodman's guns. The 3-inch Rodman guns were actually 3-inch ordnance rifles.
Once a month the 1stMN L.A. will hold an artillery competition. The most accurate shot or the most accurate cannon team will win monthly glory and even steam gift cards!
