Brief History

"Units of the Confederate States Army" by Joseph H. Crute, Jr. contains no history for this unit.17th Regiment, South Carolina Militia [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.
