Historical Sketch of the Original PLA

The group that we portray is a unit from South Carolina known as Garden's Battery or the Palmetto Light Artillery (PLA). Much of the following history comes from Glenn Dedmont's excellent book about the PLA, Southern Bronze.

A early unit muster role is available. Also the Appomattox Muster Role, and brief descriptions of many of the members.
