Battery B 1st New Jersey Light Artillery (NV)

Member Unit of the American Civil War Society (ACWS)


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 Henderson, NV area and are proud to serve as a member unit of Southern Nevada Living History Association, Federal Battalion, and the American Civil War Society, a California living history group. We have members from throughout Nevada and look forward to seeing you at one of the many events we participate in.
