The Charlotte Artillery

The Charlotte Artillery was Battery C, 1st Regiment North Carolina Artillery and hailed from Charlotte, NC, hence the name.  There is a re-enactment group for this organization.

From their website.

They have located three of the guns that were once used in the battery:

SERIAL 1569 is at Chicamauga

SERIAL 1568 is mounted on the Wall of Guns at Gettysburg

The Amherst College gun is a US-made 6-pounder brass casting gun that was "confiscated" by Confederates at the outbreak of the war.

This gun was returned to New Bern, NC, where it was captured for awhile and is now at the NC Museum of History in Raleigh.
