The First Missouri Artillery.


September 1862

From The Missouri Democrat, Tuesday, September 16, 1862.


By an order in our paper yesterday it will be seen that the 1st regiment of Missouri Light Artillery has been reorganized, and is at once to be placed on a more effective footing.  John V. Dubois, now in command of a Brigade in Gen. Rosecrans’s army, is made Colonel of this regiment.  Warren L. Lothrop, Chief of Artillery in the army of the Mississippi, has been appointed Lieut. Colonel.  The Majors are Harry Stone, Nelson Cole and A. M. Powell.  For a full list of the officers see the order.

We are gratified that this regiment has at last received due attention from the authorities of this State.  It has done gallant and most effective service wherever its respective batteries have been directed against the enemy.  In the battles of Fort Donelson and Shiloh it particularly distinguished itself.  Its reward has been tardy, but coming at last will be heartily appreciated by officers and men.

The headquarters of the regiment will for the present be at Corinth, where the senior Major, Harry Stone, is to be stationed.
