Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.

The information about the counties is from Tennesseans in the Civil War, (accessed 18 Nov 2011).

The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors database lists 2,099 men on its roster for this unit. Roster.
