History of the Unit:
Made up of men from Baker, Butts, Crawford, Dade, Houston Mitchell, Oglethorpe, Taylor, and Twiggs counties, they were the first unit from Georgia mustered into Confederate service in May 1861. Alfred Holt Colquitt was their first Colonel.

In the Antietam Campaign:
"Although it missed Second Manassas, at Antietam the unit suffered extremely heavy casualties, estimated at more than 200 of the 250 men engaged (including the regiment's lieutenant colonel and major)."
(from Fasulo)

The remainder of the War:
They were at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, then saw defensive duty in North Carolina and (Charleston) South Carolina. In February 1864 they transferred to Florida, and were engaged at Olustee. In May 1864 they were sent to Petersburg and were engaged there until early 1865, when they were back in North Carolina, fighting at Bentonville.
