Brief History[edit | edit source]

This regiment was organized in January, 1865, when three independent companies were attached to the 14th battalion, North Carolina Cavalry to bring that unit up to regimental size. It disbanded after it surrendered in April, 1865. [1]

"Units of the Confederate States Army" by Joseph H. Crute, Jr. contains no history for this unit.[2]

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin[edit | edit source]

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 - enlisted in Transylvania County

Company B - enlisted in Buncombe County

Company C - enlisted in Buncombe County

Company D - enlisted in Madison County

Company E - enlisted in Haywood County

Company F - enlisted in Buncombe County

Company G - enlisted in Henderson County

Company H - enlisted in Transylvania County
