Brief History

Was organized in Delaware at large October 25 to December 18, 1862 and mustered out September 5, 1863.

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.

Recruited primarily from Kent, and Sussex, Counties.
