Brief History

An attempt was made to organize this regiment during early 1861, but it was evidently not completed, and not recognized by the A&IGO. It appears to have been disbanded prior to April 26, 1862. Co C was disbanded in the fall of 1861, and the men assigned to Captain Pelham's Co. Va. Arty. Only 2 companies are identified as having been mustered as of this regiment.
