History of the Unit:
Formed in early March 1862, the 50th served in the defenses of Savannah until ordered to join the Army of Northern Virginia (ANV) at Richmond in July. They were at Second Manassas (30 August), before the Maryland Campaign.

In the Antietam Campaign:
The 50th was assigned to help defend Fox's Gap on South Mountain on September 14th, and the lower (later Burnside's) Bridge on the Antietam on the 16th and 17th. They were also engaged at Shepherdstown in stopping Federal pursuit on the 20th.

The remainder of the War:
The Regiment continued in service with the ANV for the duration of the War except for the Knoxville (TN) Campaign of Nov - Dec 1863 under General Longstreet.

References, Sources, and other Notes:
Basic data is from Official Records and other sources extracted by John Griffin on his excellent 50th Georgia Volunteer Infantry page. Also at that page is a transcription of an article written by Lt. William O. Fleming, Company F, about the unit's fight at Fox's Gap (South Mountain) on September 14.
