1st New Jersey Artillery, Battery A Monument

Battery A, First New Jersey Artillery that Capt. Fitzhugh speaks so highly of was from Hoboken. It was organized and commanded by Capt. William Hexamer of Hoboken and was affectionately known throughout the Army of the Potomac as "Hexamer's Battery." It had a brilliant battle record, serving in 30 major engagements and was on the right of Gen. Phil Kearney's division when that famous New Jersey general was killed at Chantilly. The 151 men and five officers composing the battery were all volunteers, coming mostly from the many German families then living in Hoboken.
