Ricketts' Battery: A History of Battery F, 1st Pennsylvania Light Artillery by Richard A Sauers and Peter Tomasak

Battery F, 1st Pennsylvania Light Artillery, won fame by ferociously defending its position on East Cemetery Hill at Gettysburg. But, there's more to the battery's history than this one battle. This book is the first comprehensive history of the battery ever written. The book surveys Battery F's entire term of service from its 1861 recruitment by Ezra Matthews, until its final mustering out in 1865. In between, the battery served honorably from Rappohannock Station to Petersburg. An exhaustive battery roster clearly shows the counties of the enlistment and corrects many past misstatements about Battery F's cannoneers. Numerous photographs, many never before published, illustrate the fast paced narrative. This history is an important addition to the literature of Pennsylvania's role in the Civil War, the Army of the Potomac, and Federal artillery.
