Brief History

The 3rd Regiment, California Infantry was organized at Stockton and Benicia Barracks September 15 to December 3, 1861. It had duty at Camp Douglass, Camp Connor and in the District of Utah until July 1866. The regiment mustered out July 27, 1866.[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.
