Commanding Officer on the Antietam Campaign:
Capt. James R. McMullin
6 14-pdr. James
The battery was re-equipped immediately after Antietam
(before 1 October 1862) with 6 10-pounder Parrott Rifles
replacing the James Rifles.
They became known as the "Jackass Battery" from their late-1861 combat experience in (West) Virginia equipped with mountain howitzers drawn by "raw, unbroken mules".
On the Antietam Campaign
At South Mountain on September 14th, "Lieutenant Crome, commanding a section of McMullins battery, was killed whilst serving a piece in place of the gunner, who had been disabled."
