Jackson’s Kanawha Artillery

  Organized originally as  Kanawha Artillery with John P. Hale's as its Captain.  There was some question about Hale, that caused him to resigned. After Hale's removal, Capt. Jackson took over command of the Kanawha.  The company saw action at Scary Creek and Carnifex Ferry. The battery was captured at Ft. Donelson, Tennessee in 1862, having the distinction of serving in the west, as a Virginia unit. However, the capture of the battery at Donelson brought a temporary close to the history of the company till it could be reformed. As many of the men returned from the prisoner of war camps in the North, Captain Thomas E. Jackson, having held the captaincy of the battery before its capture, reformed the battery in May of 1863. Sometimes referred to as Jackson's Kanawha Artillery or Jackson's Artillery after reorganization. ( Later, after the war it would also be referred to as the Charlottesville Artillery.) The company gained several recruits from the Virginia Line and the 8th Virginia Cavalry. From engagements  at Harrisonburg to Gettysburg and Droop Mountain in 1863, the company returned the following year to engage in the battles of New Market, Cold Harbor, Lynchburg, Monacacy, Georgetown, D.C., Cumberland, Md.,  Moorefield and numerous other battles in the 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign. Losses were especially horrible in men captured at Moorefield and Fisher's Hill, leaving the battery with reduced numbers for service in 1865. After the war, the battery was mistakenly labeled the Charlottesville Artillery, perhaps as a result of the affiliation of Micajah Woods with the battery, in the second half of the units history.
