Brief History

The Concordia Infantry was mustered into the service of the State by Francis L. Dancy Adjutant and Inspector General, for the term of twelve months, from the 4th day of September 1861, unless sooner discharged. The names and number of these men are to be found in the 6th Regiment in the 1st Cavalry and in Scott's 5th Cavalry Battalion; as the 6th Regiment was organized in March 1862, it is manifest that this Company must have been dissolved after six months' service in the State .   [1]   [2]

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.
