This famous battery fired the first cannon shots in the Shenandoah Valley at Hainesville on July 2, 1861. The Rockbridge cannoneers shed their first blood in the Confederate victory at Bull Run. Under Stonewall Jackson they endured the Bath-Romney campaign during January 1862. In the Valley campaign they fought with distinction at Kernstown, Winchester and Port Republic. The Stonewall Battery earned new honours at Malvern Hill, Cedar Mountain, Second Manassas, Harper’s Ferry, Sharpsburg and Fredericksburg.

It was detached for sure as the artillery was reorganized at certain points. At Gettysburg, the Rockbridge was part of the II corps' reserve artillery.

The Rockbridge Artillery Battery was historically part of stonewall brigade in the early years of the war. We are a small group of people who serve the 33rd Virginia by proving artillery support for afar using Teamspeak and coordination. The battery is lead by Captain Menelaos and will consist of volunteers from various NW regiments. There will be assigned gunners (Corporals) and loaders (Privates). You can easily rise through the ranks if shown enough interest. NCO position are open to those wishing to learn how to become designated spotters and officers.

Captain - Cpt (Leader) :The battery leader, he has the job of being a designated spotter for the entire battery and directing fire as it is needed. He works with the gunners to ensure shots are dead on accurate. Off the field of battle he is represents the battery as a diplomat.

Hey Meneloas. This sounds pretty interesting. I d have to figure out times and such but I think I might want to join your detachment.

Ingame Name: Lordbale
Age: 20
NW Regiment: 1stRddt

I have been apart of the Reddit Brigade for 10 months or so and am currently one of the main gunners of our artillery unit. I'm sure you ve seen me shoot in the tuesday and friday night NA linebattles.

I assume the 33rd Artillery would be fighting with the 33rd infantry, correct?

I just added you on steam so we can talk more later.

Approved
I have seen you pull off incredible shots, this means a fast promotion to corporal aka Gunner in the future. And I will coordinate with the 33rd in linebattles indeed.

Good Luck, Hope to see you on the field, Good day!
Most likely will, 14 Brooklyn is most likely going to be the largest N&S regiment. 33rd is 1FKI and 29th combined. Almost a 100 people in our steam group. When the alpha is released we shall see each other then.
