7th Regiment, South Carolina Volunteers, Consolidated
Brief History[edit | edit source]
On April 9, 1865 many military units were consolidated to create a stronger unit. The 7th Regiment, South Carolina Volunteers, Consolidated was formed by combining the 15th Infantry Regiment and some of the 1st, 2nd, and 6th Infantry Regiments.
Joseph H. Crute, Jr.'s book, "Units of the Confederate States Army", contains no history for this unit.
Companies in this Military Unit 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.
