A Light Battery that Fought before Petersburg - The 17th New York
The Seventeenth Independent Battery of New York Light Artillery, known as the "Orleans Battery," was organized at Lockport, New York, and mustered in August 26, 1862. It remained in the artillery camp of instruction and in the defenses of Washington until July, 1864, when it was ordered to Petersburg. It took part in the pursuit of Lee, and was present at Appomattox.
