Companies in this Regiment

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.  This regiment was composed of men from all parts of Connecticut:

Company A was largely formed by men from Fairfield County.

Company B was largely formed by men from Middlesex County.

Company C was largely formed by men from New Haven County.

Company D was largely formed by men from Tolland County.

Company E

Company F was largely formed by men from Hartford County.

Company G -  Company G, 14th Connecticut Regiment - Original Photos, History, Biographies

Company H was largely formed by men from New London County.

Company I

Company K
