Note:  This  equipment  is in various forts and batteries and  is 
engaged in the Siege of the Confederate lines.   The  batteries 
were  often  operating in several sections posted  seperately  in 
various earthworks,  etc.   The detachment of the lst Connecticut 
which  does not have a company designation apparently belong to a 
number of different companies.
