Battery G, also referred to in many publications of the time as Michigan's 7th Battery, served mostly in the western theater of the war. The Battery fought in several battles down the Mississippi River to the Texas gulf coast, with it's final battle at Mobile Bay, Alabama. Today, Battery G is a Living History Group that aspires to accurately portray life as it was during the American Civil War, with special emphasis on our portrayal of life in the Union Artillery.

This is the first ever 1st Black Civil War unit in the State of Arkansas. The group consist of Volunteers around Camden, Arkansas willing to represent the 1st Kansas.
In February 2014, it was voted on by the Ouachita County Historical Society to purchase 12 Federal Uniforms to recreate the 1st Kansas as a Reenacting group for the State of Arkansas. In March, we conducted our first drill and where ready for battle. The 1st Kansas Reenactors fought their very first battle at Poison Springs in April 2014. The 1st Kansas fought bravely, but where overwhelmed by Confederate numbers and where forced to retreat back to Camden. The following weekend the 1st Kansas portrayed the 2nd Kansas and fought alongside there brothers of the 1st Arkansas US for the 150th Battle of Jenkins Ferry. During the battle both units fought till the last round of ammunition was used and then fixed bayonets and drove the Rebels back, but during their advance they were order to fall back and head towards Little Rock. The 1st Kansas Reenactors are now part of the 1st Arkansas US organization and are active members of the reenacting community of Arkansas!
In October 2013, our group adopted another impression as US Sharpshooters. This is just for special events and is no required.
