Brief History

     The 3rd Regiment, Rhode Island Heavy Artillery was organized at Providence as 3rd Infantry August, 1861, but reorganized at Hilton Head, S. C., as Heavy Artillery December 19, 1861.

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.
