Brief History

The 3rd Regiment, Georgia Infantry was assembled at Augusta, Georgia, in April, 1861. It surrendered in April, 1865.[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.


The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors database lists 2,489 men on its roster for this unit. Roster.
