Battery C, 1st Rhode Island Light Artillery is an all-volunteer, non-profit, living history organization. The present day's Battery is dedicated to preserving the memory of those brave men of Battery C in the 1st Rhode Island Light Artillery whose selfless dedication and incalculable sacrifice contributed to the suppression of the Southern Insurrection and preservation of the Union from 1861 until 1864.

Here you will learn more about the Battery, from its early inception in 1861 to documented engagements. The gallery section of the site offers a depiction of what those early years were like as well as current photos of today's Battery C.
