Brief History

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 (The Monticello Guard) - many men from  Charlottesville 

Company B (The Albemarle Rifles) - many men from  Charlottesville,

Company C (The Scottsville Guard) - many men from Scottsville,

Company D (The Howardsville Grays) - many men from Howardsville, Albemarle County

Company E (The Piedmont Guards) - many men from Albermarle County
