Brief History[edit | edit source]

This battalion, commonly referred to as the Arsenal Guard, was composed of employees, detaiiled men, and nonconscripts who worked at the Fayetteville Arsenal and Armory. Doing the course of the war seven companies were raised at this manufactory and were organized into a battalion. It surrendered 26 April 1865.br>"Units of the Confederate States Army" by Joseph H. Crute, Jr. contains no history for this unit.[3]

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 - Cumberland County 
Company B - Cumberland County 
Company C - Cumberland County
Company D - Cumberland County 
Company E - Cumberland County
Company F - Cumberland County
Company G - Cumberland County[4]

The information about the companies comes from the Military Organizations and Installations
North Carolina 1861-1865

National Park Service, The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System, is searchable by soldier's name and state. It contains basic facts about soldiers on both sides of the Civil War, a list of regiments, descriptions of significant battles, sources of the information, and suggestions for where to find additional information.
