My interest in Battery B stems from a article I read over 20 years ago on
the action that took place along the Hagerstown Pike. In my opinion no
Union battery performed so well as Campbell's did on that bloody day. I
have followed them along to Gettysburg where they again did yeoman service
at the railroad cut to their " good practice" at Cold Harbor in 64.
You are correct. Like your friends ancestor, the battery included
"volunteer's" from the Iron Brigade which gave me my initial interest in
that famous unit.
