|Hampton’s Battery F was established in 1994 as a non-profit incorporation organization in
the state of Pennsylvania. This organization is design to portray the life of the common
soldier in the Union Artillery during the Civil War. Our Battery over the years has
participated in numerous programs such as educational presentations for schools, guided
tours, ceremonies, various living histories and Civil War reenactments. This Battery
enjoys being placed with other artillery units of the same stature to make up a six gun
Battery at events that Hampton's Battery F attends. This adds more realism in our camps
and adds excitement of a well fought battle especially at the much larger events such as
Gettysburg, Cedar Creek and Antietam. Our Battery uses a full scale privately owned
reproduction of a Model 1861 Ten-Pound Parrott Rifle and Limber.
