Save a short tour of duty on Plum Island, the sum mer of 1898 was quite uneventful for the artillerymen, while their brothers in the infantry ranks were winning fame and honors in active service; hence this history cannot include a record of Battery B, much as the writer and the city would be pleased to have it possible.
