The city of Providence organized this group in 1801 to improve citizens in the military arts. It was made up of seafaring men, with officers from the providence Marine Society. At first, the Marine Corps Artillery was equipped with two heavy coastal defense guns. When parading, the two cannons were drawn by horses and flanked by men on either side carrying short, heavy swords. Teh men subsequently obtained muskets.Military historians often write that The Providence Marine Corp of Artillery was the mother of all volunteer light artillery units of the Civil War. Their smooth bores were eventually replaced with James rifled cannons. The unit was the first volunteer battery to reach Washington and the first battery of rifled cannons in United States service. The Marine Corp of Artillery was mustered out on August 6th 1861 but continued as the 2nd Brigade, Rhode Island Active Militia.
