Brief History

This unit was listed in Brigadier General John K. Jackson, Brigadier General James H. Trapier's Divison in Jan 1865. It was called to active duty at Branchville, SC, on 5 January 1865, and was moved to Blackville, SC, on 17 January. On 15 February, it numbered about 210 men, and was posted on the western side of the congaree River, near the bridge at columbia, SC, and provided a 50 man detail to guard the Broad River bridge [1].

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.
