Re: What were common smalls arms issued to "Mounted Batteries"?
Well, not having much of a response, I hiked up to Columbus to the Ohio Historical Society and found a few nuggets of gold ...
The picture is a digital image of an inventory book of what was provided to the 6th Battery from Crawford County in 1863. You see they were issued 100 Percussion Smoothbores, our at least that is want I see. 50 to Co. A and 50 to Co. C ... 0.70 caliber.
I also found this ...
His name was Issac Roose ... he was with the 6th Battery ... looks like a infantryman with his sack coat and hardee hat
