Brief History

     The 2nd Regiment, Rhode Island was organized at Providence June, 1861. It was mustered out July 13, 1865.

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.
