Taking Griffin's Battery
11th New York Fire Zouaves and 14th Brooklyn
Battle of First Manassas - July 21, 1861
At the height of the first major clash of arms between North and South, the 11th New York Fire Zouaves (made up of New York City Firemen) and 14th Brooklyn New York State Militia together battled atop Henry House Hill to regain control of two artillery pieces of Captain Charles Griffin's battery that were lost to to the Confederate forces. By this point in the battle, the contesting lines became two armed mobs of mixed together units fighting at some points hand to hand for control over the battery. The 1st battle of Manassas was hallmarked by the vast array of colorful uniforms on both side which caused massive confusion. The dogged determination of the New Yorkers to stand and fight helped save the remainder of Griffin's and Rickett's batteries from capture. In this painting the white silk flag of the 11th New York Fire Zouaves was painstakingly reproduced from the original blood-stained artifact that saw service in the actual battle. The uniforms of the Zouaves was based off of extensive research and contemporary photographs.
