Battery B 1st New Jersey Light Artillery is a family oriented, living history organization that portrays a Federal Army artillery battery of the American Civil War. We attempt to recognize and honor the actual Battery B which served with the Army of the Potomac from 1861-1865. We are located in the Carson City, NV area and are proud to serve as a member unit of Department of the Pacific, Federal Battalion, and the Nevada Civil War Volunteers a Nevada and California living history group.
