4th Battalion, Co. "C", Hilliard's Legion: Barbour Light Artillery, or Kolb's Battery

The Barbour Light Artillery was organized at Eufaula in April 1862 with a complement of about 325 officers and men. It was mustered into Confederate service on April 30, 1862 and then proceeded to Montgomery where it was divided in two. With two other companies, it organized as the artillery battalion of Hilliard's Legion. After reaching Chattanooga, only one company was equipped as artillery; the others continued with the Legion as infantry. The Barbour Light Artillery Company was soon detached and served throughout the rest of the war as an independent artillery company, Kolb's Battery. It participated in the Kentucky Campaign, then was assigned to Samuel C. Williams' and George S. Storrs' Battalion of Artillery, Army of Tennessee. It fought in the various battles of the Army of Tennessee from Chickamauga to Atlanta, then saw action in General John Bell Hood's winter operations in Tennessee. The company reported 2 k and 1 w at Chickamauga, had 102 present in December 1863, and 96 in April 1864. In January 1865, it was sent to North Carolina. It surrendered at Augusta, GA, in April. Of the men of the company, about 45 died of disease, and about 70 were killed or wounded.

Captains: William N. Reeves (promoted); Reuben F. Kolb
1st Lieutenants:
Jonathan D. McLennan (promoted); Robert Cherry; Patrick F. Powers
2nd Lieutenants: A. J. Locks (resigned, August 23, 1862); James Lang; Robert B. Flournoy; and W. Y. Johnson (detached).
