e Tenth regiment was composed of five batteries of light artillery and five of heavy.
J. J. Bradford was its first colonel, but the regiment was, in the nature of things, always scattered.
The equipping of this regiment was slow and trying.
The first battery ready was a magnificent body of men, and was armed with the light guns seized in the Fayetteville arsenal—the only complete battery in the State.
It elected Lieut. S. D. Ramseur first captain; on his promotion it was commanded by Basil C. Manly, and then by B. B. Guion.
The next was Reilly's hard-fighting Rowan light battery This battery was equipped with guns captured at Manassas.
After Reilly's promotion to major, Capt. John A. Ramsey commanded it to the end of the war. Capt. T. H. Brem, of Charlotte, organized another of the light batteries, and with rare patriotism advanced out of his private means the money to buy uniforms, equipment and horses.
Capts. Joseph Graham and A. B. Williams succeeded to the command.
