Zesch's Militia Battery Kansas Light Artillery was an artillery battery that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War.

Service[edit | edit source]

Almost nothing is known about this unit. It was on duty at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas in October 1864, presumably called into service due to Price's Raid[citation needed] before the Battle of Wesport.

Commanders[edit | edit source]

Captain Gustavus Zesch was the Commander of Company I of 1st Kansas Volunteer Infantry. His first action was in the Battle of Wilson's Creek near Springfield, Missouri.

At the time of the Battle of Westport, his 3-year enlistment was already up and he had been mustered out. There may have been some emergency arrangement for him to command this battery of two pieces.[citation needed] Fort Leavenworth, Kansas was his hometown and it was would be easy to understand that he would want to protect his home and family when the enemy was in force as close as Westport.[citation needed]
