The remaining members of the regiment were consolidated on that day, into a battalion of four companies of heavy artillery, Major Darius J. Safford commanding, and stationed in the Defences of Washington,--one company at Fort Foote, Md., and three companies at Fort Slocum, D. C. Subsequently, June 28, companies A, C and D were removed to Fort Foote. On the twenty-fifth of August the battalion was mustered out of service entire.
