Brief History

9th Infantry Battalion was organized in June, 1861, with four companies. During the spring of 1862 it merged into the 25th Regiment Virginia Infantry. Lieutenant Colonel George W. Hansborough and Major G.D. Camden, Jr. were in command. [1]

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 County and Webster County West Virginia

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

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