9th Battalion, Virginia Infantry (Hansbrough's) (Confederate)
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 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 West Virginia
