COMPANY B
POINT COUPEE ARTILLERY

Organized about August of 1862, this company joined with Stewart's battery in early 1862. In February and March of 1862, they were at Island No. 10 and helped repulse enemy advances. They were then moved to Fort Pillow and served there until June, when the Confederates evacuated the post.

By February of 1863, the company had moved to Fort Pemberton near Greenwood, Mississippi and gave good services in the defence of the fort during March and April of that year.

By mid April, 1863, they were in or around Jackson Mississippi. Falling back to Vicksburg in May, they became part of the garrison there during the Siege, May 19th through July 4, 1863.

The men of this company that survived were captured and paroled at Vicksburg. No records have been located that shows that this company existed beyond Vicksburg.
