Brief History

The 11th Regiment, North Carolina Infantry (Bethel Regiment) was organized at Camp Mangum, near Raleigh, North Carolina, in March, 1862. It lost over half of the 617 at Gettysburg, reported 15 casualties at Bristoe. It surrendered 8 officers and 74 men.[1]

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.
