Brief History[edit | edit source]

Organized with three companies at Morganton on 10 June 1864. Consolidated with the 4th and 7th Infantry Battalions, Junior Reserves, and designated as the 72nd Infantry Regiment (3rd Junior Reserves) at Wilmington on 3 January 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]

The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors database lists 376 men on its roster for this unit. Roster.

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 - many men from Iredell County 

Company B - many men from Catawba County

Company C - many men from Burke County and Caldwell County

Information about the companies and their rosters are in Manarin and Jordan, North Carolina Troops 1861-1865: a roster. [3]
