The Civil War service of the 3rd Battalion North Carolina Artillery is recounted in the pages of this unit history. Known as Moore's Battalion, the unit served with the Army of Northern Virginia before returning to North Carolina in defense of the Cape Fear region. Major John Wheeler Moore's batteries served in obscure engagements at White Hall Bridge, Thompson's Bridge, Town Creek, Sugar Loaf, North East, and Cox's Bridge. Moore's Battalion was also present at the more significant battles of Fort Fisher, Fort Anderson and Bentonville. Their wartime service spanned exactly three years, from their muster into Confederate service until General Joe Johnston's surrender at Bennett Place near Durham Station, North Carolina.
