Brief History

Joseph H. Crute, Jr.'s book, "Units of the Confederate States Army", contains no history for this unit. This regiment most likely transferred into another regiment or was combined with another regiment to create a new regiment, or is another name for an existing regiment. Looking at the service records of the soldiers may give clues to the different regiments they may have served in.

According to the "4th Battalion of State Troops-Senior Reserves" Internet site, this Battalion was organized in mid-1864.  They surrenedered at Durham Station, Orange County, North Carolina on 26 April 1865.

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.

Service records for soldiers found on the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors Internet site (referred to in Sources) list these soldiers coming from this regiment.

  • Company A - Newberry District - Roster
  • Company B - Abbeville District - Roster
  • Company C - Newberry District - Roster
  • Company D - Laurens District - Roster
  • Company E - Laruens District - Roster
  • Company F - Abbeville District - Roster
  • Company G - Roster (one name only)
  • Company H - Roster
