The College Hill Battery

The 3-inch rifles of the Thirty-Fourth Independent Battery New York Volunteers harrassed the Rebel attackers from near midnight on Nov. 28 to dawn on Nov. 29 from the College Hill south of Fort Sanders. They also had one piece in the fort’s Northwest Bastion. There’s even a story behind the battery’s swallow-tailed silk guidon.
