Reverend Frank J. Boggs is the man who is mentioned as Major of the Twelfth Battalion of Light Artillery.
At the time the war broke out he was a member of the Virginia Methodist Conference, and was in charge of Union Station Methodist Episcopal Church on Church Hill, in this city.
The Richmond Grays, of the First Regiment of Virginia, had its full complement of men, and a company of infantry, called the Second Grays, was organized, and Rev. Mr. Boggs was elected captain of the company.
He made a brave and efficient officer, and after the battle of Manassas, resigned his rank in the infantry to accept the command of the Twelfth Battalion of Light Artillery.
The battalions of artillery on field duty with army corps were known by the name of their commanders—such as Cutshaw, Brander, Poague, Pegram and others, and heavy artillery was represented by numbers —Battalion Twelve was really infantry supporting
