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 (Danville Blues) - many men from Danville County

Company B (Danville Grays) - many men from Danville County

Company C (Nottoway Rifle Guards) - many men from Nottoway County

Company D (Prospect Rifle Grays) - many men from Prince Edward County

Company E (Black Eagle Rifles) - many men from Cumberland County

Company F (Farmville Guard) - many men from Farmville County
