For those few unaware, the Washington Artillery was five batteries made up from the elite of New Orleans society. One might think that they were effete poseurs, but they weren't.

Four went east and one stayed in the west. If you were up against one of these batteries, you had a problem. These guys were better than good. They were much more than fancy guys parading in smart uniforms. They worked their guns with a zeal that could overmatch most opposing batteries.

Thanks for the recommendation. A must read.
