Michigan Light Artillery;

Capt. Samuel De Golyer.

This battery of "flying artillery" was the initial battery of Maj. Gen. John A. Logan's division to arrive on the field around 10:30 a.m., May 12, 1863. Captain De Golyer placed his six guns near the Fourteenmile Creek bridge with two 12-pounder howitzers to the left of the Utica Road and four 12-pounder James rifles to the right of the road. The battery soon fell back 260 yards to a position west of the Utica Road on the higher ground of Artillery Ridge.
