Item No. AR3735BZ Categories , Tag


Really neat manual of the by-laws and rules of order for the Troy City Artillery. The Troy City Artillery began as “the Independent Fusiliers” during the War of 1812 and remained active through the Civil War. When the Civil War began, many members of the Troy City Artillery enlisted in the 2nd NY Volunteer Infantry, which formed immediately after the outbreak of war in April 1861. Quite a few also enlisted in the 125th NY Volunteer Infantry, which formed in August 1862. They were the first two Rensselaer County Regiments. New men continued to enlist in the Troy City Artillery, which acted as a home guard during the war, protecting the office where draft numbers were drawn in 1863, escorting the 2nd and 125th Regiments as they left and then arrived back in Troy. This example is dated 1861. Presumably printed not long after February of that year following the amended rules put in place on February 6, 1861. The manual itself contains 55 pages of rules and regulations for the regiment and measures 5″ x 3.25″.
