Brief History

The 5th Regiment South Carolina Infantry (also called Jenkin's Rifles) was organized about April 13, 1861, for twele months and mustered into the servce of the Confederate States June 4, 1861. At the end of the term of service the unit was disbanded but a large number of the men re-enlisted in the Palmetto Regiment, South Carolina Sharpshooters, and some in the 6th Regiment South Carolina Infantry. It was reorganized for the war on April 23, 1862, composing of men who had formerly served in the twelve month military units of the 5th, 6th, and 9th Regiments South Carolina Infantry , and some new recruits. On April 9, 1865, the unit surrendered with Bratton's Brigade at Appomattox, Virginia.[1][2][3]

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.
