Unit history

Wounded at 2nd Manassas on August 30, 1862, Col Waller T Patton spent the remainder of the year recuperating. Capt Ashby was in command on September 17th at Sharpsburg.

On the Sharpsburg Campaign

"Near or a little past noon, the 24th Virginia regiment was detached [from Kemper's Brigade] and sent some eight hundred or a thousand yards to and beyond the Confederate right, to keep watch in the direction of some of the fords of the Antietam. A short while after this regiment was detached, the 7th Virginia under Captain Philip Ashby was sent to a point from five hundred to six hundred yards to the right of the position it had been occupying in brigade line, leaving General Kemper with three small regiments, 1st, 11th, and 17th Virginia numbering not exceeding two hundred men"
