The National Artillery was organized in Athens, Georgia in 1858. The name was changed January 2, 1861 to the Troup Artillery in honor of former Georgia Governor, George Michael Troup.

William S. Smedlund continues to research the history of this company and would like anyone who is a descendant of these men or anyone having letters, diaries, reminiscences, or photographs of any member of the Troup Artillery to contact him. Additions and corrections are also welcome. He has already located many individual photographs of members, other related photographs, and sketches, maps, etc. that were drawn by members of this company. A web site dedicated to the Troup Artillery is currently available at Use this link and the links below to access information he has uncovered about this company and each of the men.

A book titled Sons of Tom Cobb, Troup Artillery, Athens, Georgia was written by William S. Smedlund and published with a grant from the R.J. Taylor Jr. Foundation. The book is available from Smedlund for $48 plus $5 postage. Follow the link to read about the book in an article written by Kenneth H. Thomas Jr. for the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
