A Roster of Company F. 55th Regiment, NC Troops

This company, known as the "South Mountain Rangers," was raised primarily in Cleveland County in April-May, 1862. It was mustered into state service at Camp Mangum, near Raleigh, on May 30, 1862, and assigned to the 55th Regiment N.C. Troops as Company F. After joining the regiment the company functioned as a part of the regiment, and its history for the remainder of the war is reported as a part of the regimental history.

 The following roster was compiled primarily from information in the microfilm edition of the Compiled Service Records of Confederate Soldiers Who Served in Organizations from the State of North Carolina (Record Group 109, M270), National Archives and Records Service, Washington, D.C. Record Group 109 includes enlistment papers, pay vouchers, requisitions, letters of resignation, discharge certificates, and abstracts of medical and prisoner of war returns. Materials relating specifically to this company include a company muster-in and descriptive roll dated May 30, 1862, and company muster rolls for May 31-June 30, 1862; May 1-June 30, 1864; and September 1-October 31, 1864.

 Also utilized in compiling this roster were The War of the Rebellion: A Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, the North Carolina adjutant general's Roll of Honor, state militia records, newspaper casualty lists and obituaries, wartime claims for bounty pay and allowances, postwar registers of claims for artificial limbs, Confederate pension applications filed with the states of Noah Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida, Confederate Soldiers' Home records, the 1860 and 1870 federal censuses of North Carolina, and letters, diaries, reminiscences, and other manuscripts in the Southern Historical Collection (University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill), the Duke University Library Special Collections Department (Durham), and the North Carolina Division of Archives and History (Raleigh). Among the secondary sources consulted were records of the North Carolina division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, postwar rosters, regimental and county histories, marriage bond, will, and cemetery indexes, published and unpublished genealogies, biographical dictionaries, the Confederate Veteran, the Cleveland County volume of the North Carolina County Heritage Book series, Walter Clark's Histories of the Several Regiments and Battalions from North Carolina in the Great War, 1861-'65, and the North Carolina volume of the extended edition of Confederate Military History.
