41st REGIMENT, Co. F, N.C. TROOPS

 

COMPANY F, 41ST REGIMENT N. C. TROOPS

(COMPANY A, 3rd Regiment N. C Cavalry)


This company, originally known as "Davis Dragoons," was enlisted at Morganton, Burke County, for twelve months service. The original recruits were principally from Burke County. The company was mustered into Confederate States service at Morganton on December 17, 1861, to date from November 23, 1861, as Captain Thomas G. Walton's Company of North Carolina Volunteers. From Morganton the company moved to Wilmington, where it was reported at Camp Anderson on February 28, 1862. The March-April, 1862, muster roll reports it at Camp Wyatt, near Wilmington. On May 13, 1862, the company was reorganized under Captain Elisha A. Perkins and became known as Captain Perkins' Company of North Carolina Volunteers. Little is known of the company's activities during this period. On the May-June and July-August, 1862, company muster rolls the station of the company is given as Onslow County. It can only be assumed that they were performing the same picket and scouting duties as were other cavalry companies in the same general area. On September 3, 1862, the company was assigned to the 41st Regiment N, C. Troops (3rd Regiment N. C Cavalry) . Initially designated Company A, it was later redesignated Company F. After that date the company functioned as a part of the regiment, and its history is recorded as a part of the regimental history.

The information contained in the following roster of the company was compiled principally from company muster rolls, which cover from the date of muster-in (December 17, 1861) through August, 1862, and April through October, 1864. No company muster rolls were found for the period September, 1862, through March, 1864, or after October, 1864. Although there are no Roll of Honor records for this company, useful information was obtained from receipt rolls, medical records, prisoner of war records, and other primary records, supplemented by state pension applications, United Daughters of the Confederacy records, and postwar rosters and histories.
