    Special Notes: Easy to Manufacture, Inexpensive, Reliable, and Accurate to Shoot

    One famous U.S. inventor was a former West Point graduate and ordnance officer named Robert Parker Parrott.

    Robert Parker Parrott In 1836, Parrott resigned his rank of captain and went to work for the West Point Foundry at Cold Spring, New York. This foundry was a civilian operated business and Parrott, as a superintendent, was able to dedicate some forty years perfecting a rifled cannon and a companion projectile. By 1860, he had patented a new method of attaching the reinforcing band on the breech of a gun tube. Although he was not the first to attach a band to a tube, he was the first to use a method of rotating the tube while slipping the band on hot. This rotation, while cooling, caused the band to attach itself in place uniformly rather than in one or two places as was the common method, which allowed the band to sag in place. The 10-pounder Parrott was patented in 1861 and the 20- and 30-pounder guns followed in 1861. He quickly followed up these patents by producing 6.4-, 8-, and 10-inch caliber cannons early in the war. The Army referred to these as 100, 200, and 300-pounder Parrotts respectively. By the end of the conflict the Parrott gun was being used extensively in both armies

    Richmond Howitzers History




    George Wythe Randolph, the first captain of the Richmond Howitzers, was born in 1818 at Monticello, the home of his maternal grandfather, Thomas Jefferson. Randolph was appointed a midshipman at the age of thirteen, and served in the navy for six years. Afterwards he studied law at the University of Virginia, and in 1850 moved to Richmond to practice his profession. He conceived the idea of the "Howitzer Battery", which began organization on November 9, 1859, himself as captain and Gaston Otey as First Sergeant.

    The Richmond Howitzers grew into a battalion of three companies by May 1861. The original company, reorganized on May 8 with the election of Captain John C. Shields, was thereafter known as the 1st Company. In November 1861 Captain Shields was promoted to Lt. Colonel and transferred, to be replaced by Lt. Wm. Palmer. In March of 1862 Captain Palmer, who desired to go into army medical service, was replaced by 1st. Lt. Edward McCarthy.

    An elite unit, the Howitzers served with distinction. The 1st Company Richmond Howitzers, a four-gun battery, participated at First Manassas, the Peninsular Campaign, Seven Pines, the Seven Days' Battles, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Petersburg, and the retreat from Richmond to Appomattox.

    At Gettysburg, on July 2, 1863, its two rifled guns expended 200 rounds of ammunition in less than two hours at Devil's Den, and the next day, one piece alone expended 300 rounds in support of Pickett's Charge. The battery saw its commander, Edward S. McCarthy, killed at Cold Harbor; felled instantly by a sharpshooter’s minie ball.

    The book: "Four Years Under Marse Robert," by Major Robert Stiles of Cabell's Batallion offers these observations of the Richmond Howitzers:




    "The composition of the three companies was very similar; that is, all of them were made up largely of young business men and clerks of the highest grade and best character from the city of Richmond, but included also a number of country boys, for the most part of excellent families, with a very considerable infusion of college-bred men, for it was strikingly true that in 1861 the flower of our educated youth gravitated toward the artillery. The outcome was something quite unparalleled, so far as I know. It is safe to say that no less than one hundred men were commissioned from the corps during the war, and these of every rank from a Secretary of War down to a second lieutenant."


    "Few things have ever impressed me as did the intellectual and moral character of the men who composed the circle I entered the day our guide led my brother and myself to the Howitzer Camp. I had lived for years at the North, had graduated recently at Yale, and had but just entered upon the study of law in the city of New York, when the war began... To my surprise and delight, around the camp fires of the First Company, Richmond Howitzers, I found throbbing an intellectual life as high and brilliant and intense as any I had ever known."






    Time Line:
    November 9, 1859 - George Wythe Randolph founds the Richmond Howitzers, a light artillery unit, and is elected captain. The Howitzers march to Charles Town to help guard John Brown during his trial and subsequent execution.

    1860 - The Richmond Howitzers become Company H, 1st Virginia Volunteer Regiment.

    May 3–9, 1861 - Three companies organize as the Richmond Howitzer Battalion and are mustered into Confederate service.

    September 13, 1861 - The 2nd and 3rd companies, Richmond Howitzers, become a part of the 1st Virginia Artillery Regiment.

    April 9, 1865 - The 1st Company, Richmond Howitzers, disbands near Red Oak Church, and the 2nd and 3rd companies surrender with the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House.

    April 10, 1871 - The Richmond Howitzers reorganize as a light artillery company of the Virginia militia.

    1917–1918 - The Richmond Howitzers serve as Company A, 111th Field Artillery Regiment, during World War I.

    February 3, 1941 - The Richmond Howitzers enter federal service as a part of the 111th Field Artillery Regiment in the 29th Infantry Division.

    1942–1945 - The Richmond Howitzers serve as Battery A, 111th Field Artillery Regiment, during World War II.

    1972 - The Richmond Howitzers become Battery A, 111th Field Artillery Regiment, in the Virginia National Guard.

    Le 6e d'infanterie de Louisiane, sous la direction du Major-général Paioletti, est devenu l'un des plus grandes et le plus active dans le jeux War Of RIghts, et aussi l'une des plus respectés sur le champ de bataille. Des attaquants implacables, le sixième de Louisiane, défenseurs et tenaces de l'Infanterie de la Louisiane ont gagné le surnom, "les tigres."

    Nous avons besoin maintenant, des soldats francophones pour combler notre deuxième section de compagnie B. C'est la seule unité française dans war of rights et cela est à 100 % vrai dans l’histoire de cette unité de Louisiane.

    La plus grande et la plus cosmopolite du pays dans les états confédérés était la Nouvelle Orléans, en Louisiane. Compte tenu de son port animé, débordant avec des exportations de coton, "roi", et de la canne à sucre, du tabac et de la riche histoire de l'état français et de l'occupation espagnole, lorsque la Confédération a lancé un appel aux volontaires pour défendre le pays contre l'invasion du Nord, les personnes nées au Canada d’origine française, italiens, irlandais, Allemands, et créoles se sont ralliés à leur pays d'adoption. Le sixième d'infanterie de Louisiane, bientôt connu sous le nom de "Tigres", avait plus de deux cent cinquante nationalités sur son étandar.

    Attention! French-speaking soldiers needed!

    The Sixth Louisiana Infantry, under the leadership of Maj. Gen. Paioletti, has become one of the largest and most active units in the War of Rights community, and also one of the most respected on the field of battle. Unrelenting attackers, bitterly tenacious defenders, the Sixth Louisiana Infantry have earned the nickname, “Tigers.”

    We are now calling for French-speaking soldiers to fill our SECOND PLATOON of Company B. This is the only French unit in the War of Rights community and it is 100% historically correct for the Louisiana Brigade.

    The largest and most ethnically diverse city in the Confederate States was New Orleans, Louisiana. Given its bustling port, overflowing with exports of “King Cotton,” tobacco, and sugarcane, and the state’s rich history of both French and Spanish occupation, when the Confederacy called for volunteers to defend the country against Northern invasion, entire companies of native born French, Italians, Irish, Germans, and Creoles rallied to their adopted country’s flag. The Sixth Louisiana Infantry, soon known as the “Tigers”, had over two hundred and fifty nationalities on its muster roll.
