Manuscript 8" x 25", "We the undersigned do hereby tender our Services, separately and individually to the Governor of the State of Georgia as the Sumter Flying Artillery to serve during the entire War with the United States, May 23, 1861". It continues with a listing of 64 volunteers including A(llen) S(herrod) Cutts as Captain. At the outbreak of the Civil war, Cutts raised a battery of Artillery in Georgia, known as the Sumter Artillery. The battery arrived in Virginia after the First Battle of Bull Run, and saw action at the Battle of Dranesville. In 1862 Cutts expanded the battery to a battalion, the 11th Georgia Artillery Battalion, becoming its commander. This work was rewarded with promotions to the ranks of major (May 22, 1862), lieutenant colonel (May 26, 1862) and colonel (April 22, 1864). The Battalion served in the Artillery Reserve of the Army of Northern Virginia under William N. Pendleton in the Seven Days Battles. It remained near Richmond, Virginia, for a time, missing the Second Battle of Bull Run. Cutts' battalion fought in the battles of Antietam, Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, again in the Artillery Reserve. They also fought at Gettysburg, without Cutts, commanded by John Lane.
