Richmond National Battlefield ParkMany of the men, like Major Parker and Lieutenant J. Thompson Brown, returned to their homes in Richmond after the war. Brown became a successful local businessman, and in 188 purchased the ground here in order to preserve the area where the battery spent so much of its service. Sometime before 1906, the surviving members of Parker's Battery erected the small granite monument here to commemorate their fallen comrades, and to emphasize the battery's participation in the defense of their homes and capital.
