Welcome to Knibb's Battery

Knibb's Battery is a family-oriented living history unit based in Richmond, Virginia. We strive to honor our heritage through accurate depiction of a working Confederate artillery battery. Units we portray include the Goochland-Turner Light Artillery (1861-1862), the King William Artillery (1862-1864), and the Tredegar Artillery (1864-1865). We welcome all recruits regardless of experience. We are an active unit participating in reenactments, memorial and graveside services, living history, and other special events. Our members hail from all walks of life and a variety of backgrounds. We put safety first, but strive to have fun, too.
For more information, please contact Capt. James H. Cochrane, Commander, at JimmyC825@aol.com or visit www.KnibbsBattery.org
