There were two mountain howitzers attached to Capt. Eli Lilly's Eighteenth Indiana Battery, which traveled and fought with Wilder's Lightning Brigade. They didn't add a lot, but they did help to make Lilly's the largest battery in the Union service.
The howitzers seem not to included in the total for their marker at Chickamauga, though they may be included on the monument itself.
