Heavy Artillery Volunteer Regiment was organized as the 19th Infantry
Regiment and was changed to Heavy Artillery in November of 1865. In May
of 1864 General Grant decided that he needed Infantry more than heavy
artillery and changed their function back but not the name. They were
assigned to one of the best brigadier generals, Emery Upton, and fought
in many of the key battles in the east. There were seven Wethersfield
men in this unit.
