Brief History

2nd Battalion, North Carolina Infantry  was formed at Garysburg, North Carolina, during the fall of 1861. It surrendered with 3 officers and 49 men.[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.

Company A - Stokes County
Company B -  Surry County 
Company C -  Richmond, Virginia
Company D -  Richmond, Virginia
Co.mpany E -  Meriwether, Gorgia
Company  F -  Raldolph County 
Company G -  Forsythe County 
Company H -  Madison County[2]
The information about the companies comes from  A Guide to Military Organizations
