Army of Northern
The Amherst Artillery is a family oriented unit. We are made up of families and individuals throughout the state of Indiana. We are a group of individuals brought together by our love of history. We desire to honor and remember not only the soldiers who fought but also the civilians. They fought their own battle on the home front.
Our goals for this unit are:
To educate the public about the time period between 1861 to 1865.
To maintain the historical accuracy and integrity of the Amherst Artillery soldiers and civilians of Virginia.
To create a family bond within the unit.
