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.


Company A (The Montpelier Guard) - many men from Orange County

Company B ( The Culpeper Minute Men) - many men from Culpeper County

Company C (The Gordonsville Grays) - many men from Orange County

Company D (The Louisa Blues) - many men from Louisa County

Company E (The Culpeper Ruflemen) - many men from Culpaper County

Company F (The Barboursville Guards) - many men from Orange County

Company G ( The Lanier Guard) - many men from Maryland

Company H (The Winchester Boomerangs) - many men from Winchester, County

Company  I  (The Frontier Rifles) - many men from Hampshire County

Company K (The Hampshire Guard) - many men from Hampshire County
