Brief History

Organized at Kinston, in the fall of 1862. Many of the companies had already seen lanrge and faithful service in the protection of Eastern Carolina.Those who remained with the Army were surrendered at Appomattox Court House on 9 April 1865.[1]

"Units of the Confederate States Army" by Joseph H. Crute, Jr. contains no history for this unit.[2]

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 - mostly from New Hanover County

Company B - mostly from Onslow County

Company C - mostly from Caswell County

Company D - mostly from Harnett County

Company F - mostly from Lenior County and Craven County

Company G - mostly from Halifax County

Company H - mostly from Onslow County

Company I - mostly from Wake County

Company K - mostly from Martin County, Washington County, Beaufort County, and Pitt County[3]

The above information about the companies comes from Histories of the several regiments and battalions from North Carolina, in the great war 1861-'65.

Information about the companies and their rosters are in Manarin and Jordan, North Carolina Troops 1861-1865 A Roster.[4]
