Welcome to the Robinson's Battery homepage!

Celebrating and honoring Michigan's role in the Civil War

Robinson's Battery is a reenactment group dedicated to the accurate portrayal of the men who served in Battery C, 1st Michigan Light Artillery under the command of George Robinson.  Additional materials regarding the artillery used in the Civil War era, created by Chuck TenBrink, and previously located at cwartillery.org, are also available here.

The purpose of the reenactment battery is to foster and preserve the history of the American Civil War era.  This will be done through research, publications, reenactments, ceremonies and living history demonstrations.  Robinson's Battery is incorporated as a 501 (c)(3) corporation.  All donations are tax deductible and gratefully accepted. 

Our corporate address is: 9703 Verona Road; Battle Creek, MI 49014.

A battery of field artillery is worth a thousand muskets.
