=== Brief History ===
"Compendium of the War of the Rebellion" by Frederick H. Dyer contains no history for this unit.<ref name="cwss">National Park Service, [http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/ The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System] (accessed 4 January 2011).</ref>
=== Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin ===
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.
The [http://www.nps.gov/civilwar/soldiers-and-sailors-database.htm Civil War Soldiers and Sailors database] lists 243 men on its roster for this unit. [http://www.nps.gov/civilwar/search-soldiers.htm?submitted=1&SDunitCode=UME0001R0M Roster].<br>
