Spotswood Henry And The 2ND Artillery

From U.S. Army register  By United States. Dept. of the Army, United States. Adjutant-General's Office:

On the above list:
2nd Regiment of Artillery

Colonel Winfield Scott
Captain Spotswood Henry

Captain [Alexander] Spotswood Henry, son of the famed Patrick Henry, was significant in (my ancestor) William Hinds' military service; Captain Henry recruited him.

Also on the list of officers in the 2nd Regiment of Artillery was Nathan Towson.
