Brief History[edit | edit source]

Organized as 1st Alabama siege artillery African descent.
Designation changed to 6th U.S. Colored heavy artillery, March 11, 1864.
Changed to 7th U.S. Colored Heavy Artillery, April 26, 1864.
Changed to 11th U.S. Colored Troops (new) Infantry, January 23, 1865. [1] [2] [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.
