Company G, 57th REGIMENT, N.C. TROOPS

 

Company G, 57th Regiment N. C. Troops

This company was raised in Lincoln County on July 4, 1862. It was mustered into service at Salisbury on July 17,1862, and assigned to the 57th 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 Soldiers Who Served in Organizations from the State of North Carolina (Record Group 109, M270), National Archives and Records Administration, 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 muster rolls dated July, 1862-December, 1863, and March, 1864-February, 1865.

Also utilized in 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 North Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida, Confederate Soldiers' Home records, and the 1860 and, 1870 federal censuses of North Carolina. A search was made also for relevant letters, diaries, reminiscences, and other manuscripts in the Southern Historical Collection (University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill), the Duke University Library Special Collections Department, and the North Carolina Division of Archives and History.

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Confederacy, postwar rosters, regimental and county histories, marriage bond, will, and cemetery indexes, published and unpublished genealogies, biographical dictionaries, the North Carolina County Heritage Book series, the Confederate Veteran, Walter Clark's Histories of the Several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.
