From Bergeron, LA Confed. Units, 13-14:

"This battalion of light artillery was organized around August, 1862, near Abbeville, Mississippi. Most of the men had originally served in Captain Richard A. Stewart’s Pointe Coupee Battery. The battery was mustered in about August, 1861, and ordered to Columbus, Kentucky. During the Battle of Belmont, November 7, 1861, the men engaged the enemy’s gunboats on the Mississippi River. Company B (newly recruited) joined Stewart’s battery in early 1862. In February and March, 1862, the men served heavy artillery at Island No. 10 and helped repulse enemy advances on March 7 to 9. The men moved to Fort Pillow on March 18 and served there until June 5, 1862, when the Confederates evacuated the post. From Fort Pillow the men marched to Grenada, Mississippi. The battalion became complete with the creation of Company C from men transferred from existing companies or recently recruited. On December 5, 1862, at least part of the battalion fought in an engagement at Coffeeville, Mississippi. Company B moved to Fort Pemberton near Greenwood in February, 1863, and Companies A and C received orders about the same time to report for duty at Port Hudson, Louisiana. Company B did good service in the defense of Fort Pemberton against several enemy attacks in March and early April, 1863. By mid-April, all three companies were in or around Jackson, Mississippi, and were attached to different brigades of Major General William W. Loring’s infantry division. Companies A and C fought in the Battle of Champion Hill, May 16, 1863. Companies B and C and part of Company A fell back to Vicksburg and became part of the garrison there during the siege, May 19-July 4, 1863. The other part of Company A operated with Loring’s division in central and eastern Mississippi through the end of 1863. Most of the men captured and paroled at Vicksburg apparently never returned to duty with the battalion, and Companies B and C ceased to exist. Company A served in the Meridian Campaign, February 3-March 6, 1864, and marched with Loring’s division to join the Army of Tennessee in northern Georgia in May, 1864. The company fought at Resaca on May 13 and repulsed an enemy attack at Calhoun on May 18. During the remainder of the Atlanta Campaign, the company participated in all the marches and many of the engagements of the Army of Tennessee. The company accompanied the army into Tennessee in late 1864. Most of the men and all of the cannons of Company A were captured during the Battle of Nashville, December 16, 1864, and the battery virtually ceased to exist after that date. Of the approximately 346 men enrolled in the battalion during the war, 27 were killed in battle and 28 died of disease."
