Brief History

 33rd Infantry Regiment was organized at Pensacola, Florida, in April, 1862. Its members were raised in Coffee, Butler, Dale, Montgomery, and Covington counties. Very few surrendered in North Carolina. 18th Battalion Partisan Rangers, formerly Gunter's 1st Battalion, was organized during the summer of 1862 in Jackson County.  In November it was dismounted by consent and called Gibson's and 18th or 21st Battalion, then was attached to the 33rd Alabama Regiment.[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.
