Brief History

5th Regiment, North Carolina Infantry was organized at Halifax, North Carolina, in July,1861.[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 - Cumberland County 

Company B - Gates County

Company C - Johnston County 

Company D - Craven County and Lenoir County

Company E - Rowan County 

Company F - Bertie County 

Company G - Wilson County

Company H - Gates County 

Company I - Caswel County

Company K - Rowan County[2]

 The information about the companies comes from A Guide to Military Organizations and Installations North Carolina 1861-1865
