60th Regiment, Georgia Infantry (Confederate)

Brief History[edit | edit source]

Organized during the spring of 1862 at Savannah, Georgia, by adding four companies to Stiles' 4th Georgia Battalion National Park Service, [1]

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 E - (also known as the Bartow Avengers) - many men from DeKalb County.[2]

The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors database lists 2,154 men on its roster for this unit. Roster.
