Company E, 34th REGIMENT,N.C. TROOPS

 

Company E, 34th Regiment N. C. Troops

This company, known as the "Shady Grove Rangers," was raised in Lincoln County and was enlisted at Lincolnton on September 11, 1861. It was mustered into state service at Camp Fisher, at High Point, on October 25, 1861, and was assigned to the 34th Regiment N.C. Troops as Company E. The company functioned thereafter as part of the 34th Regiment, and its history for the remainder of the war is reported as part of the regimental history.

The information contained in the following roster was compiled principally from a company muster-in roll dated October 25, 1861, and from company muster rolls dated January-April, 1862; January-April, 1863; and July, 1863-October, 1864. No company muster rolls were found for September 11-December 31, 1861; May-December, 1862; May-June, 1863; and November, 1864-April, 1865. Valuable information was obtained from primary sources such as the North Carolina adjutant general's Roll of Honor, discharge certificates, medical records, prisoner of war records, pension applications, and Civil War newspapers. Secondary sources such as postwar rosters and histories, cemetery records, and records of the United Daughters of the Confederacy also provided useful information.
