Brief History[edit | edit source]

"7th Infantry Battalion [also called St.Paul's Foot Rifles] was organized before the war and entered Confederate service during the summer of 1861.The four serving in the West disbanded during August, 1862.[1].

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin[edit | edit source]

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.
