Our heroes...

List of North Carolina Troops raised in Cleveland & Rutherford Counties  during the War Between the States.

This listing is abstracted from the multiple sources, however, the first place you should look when researching your ancestors in North Carolina should be the following set of books:

North Carolina Troops 1861-1865 A Roster
© 1985 Compiled by Weymouth T Jordan, Jr
Unit Histories by Louis H Manari

This 17 Volume set of books is a wonderful history of each Regiment from NC. Mr Jordan gives short biographies on each Soldier, including his home county, his occupation, his age, date of enlistment, battles fought, injuries & wounds, etc. The books are available in most libraries across the state, and the NC Archives.
Click on the Company if you'd like to see the roster.

New offer!! If you find your ancestor on any of the rosters, and would like your name/e-mail address listed as a contact for others researching the soldier, send me a note. I'll be happy to add the information. Maybe this will help someone find a clue to break through their "brick wall". Check to see who may be researching your own Confederate hero.

Have someone from another county/state who served in these units? Let me know, I'll be happy to add them.
