About Cushing's Battery
Cushing’s Battery is a non-profit, non-stock corporation formed in 1992 in Saukville, Wisconsin whose purpose is to educate the public in the military aspects of the American Civil War focusing mainly on the Union Artillery. Many of the Camp 5 members are also members of Cushing's Battery.
The Battery owns its own full scale, reproduction Model 1860 3-inch Ordnance Rifle artillery piece that has won live shoot competitions. The Battery supports itself by donations, fund raising events and paid demonstrations.
