History Of Hampton Battery F Independent Light Artillery

ROBERT CAMPBELL, Artificer. Mustered in January, 1862. Mustered out at expiration of term. Page 79


Independent Battery F, Pennsylvania Light Artillery was recruited at Pittsburgh and enlisted for a term of three years. The original officers were Captain Robert B. Hampton, First Lieutenant James P. Fleming, First Lieutenant Nathaniel Irish, Second Lieutenant Alfred N. Harbours. 

Robert Campbell was battery artificer with Hampton’s Battery, which was Independent Battery F Pennsylvania Light Artillery. Sometimes it can be listed as Battery F 1st Pennsylvania Independent Light artillery or even other combinations of those words. It varies depending on the source.  Richard  [email protected]

 Just before the Battle of Gettysburg, Batteries C and F, Pennsylvania Independent Light Artillery—both from Pittsburgh—were consolidated into one unit, known collectively as “Hampton’s Battery” in honor of Battery F’s former captain, Robert B. Hampton, recently killed at Chancellorsville. The Hampton Battery, now commanded by Battery C’s Capt. James Thompson, saw significant action at Gettysburg, most notably in the Peach Orchard on July 2, where Pvt. Casper Carlisle later received the Medal of Honor for his efforts to save one of the battery’s guns under heavy fire. A Pittsburgh native myself, I was intrigued to learn more about the mystery photo.
