=== Brief History  ===
"Units of the Confederate States Army" by Joseph H. Crute, Jr. contains no history for this unit.<ref>National Park Service, [httphttps://www.itd.nps.gov/cwsscivilwar/ soldiers-and-sailors-database.htm The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System], (accessed 6 December 2010).</ref>
=== 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.<br>
The [http://www.nps.gov/civilwar/soldiers-and-sailors-database.htm Civil War Soldiers and Sailors database] lists 46 men on its roster for this unit. Possibly this unit did not complete its organization, and the men went to other units. [http://www.nps.gov/civilwar/search-soldiers.htm?submitted=1&SDunitCode=CNCHOSKC]. === Other Sources ===
