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 (Letcher Guard) (Became 2nd Company A of 25th Infantry in 1862)- many men from Taylor County

Company B (Capt. William H. Mollohan's Company) (Became 2nd Company G of 25th Infantry in 1862) - many men from Braxton and Webster Counties

Company C (Braxton Blues) (Became 2nd Company C of 25th Infantry in 1862) - many men from Braxton County

Company D (Pocahontas Rescues) (Became Company I of 25th Infantry in 1862) - many men from Pocahontas County

(Capt. George W. Hansbrough's Company) (Consolidated with Letcher Guard) many men from Taylor County
