Brief History

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.

Company A (Fauquier Mountain Rangers)

Company B (1st)(Howard Dragoons) - many men from Howard County, Maryland

Company B (2nd) (Letcher Brock's Gap Rifles) - many men from Rockingham County

Company C (Shenandoah Rangers) - many men from Shenandoah County

Company D (Captain Macon Jordan) - many men from Page County

Company E (Bowen's Mounted Rangers) (also called The Front Royal Company)

Company F (Hampshire Riflemen) (also known as New Creek Riflemen) - many men from Hampshire County, Hardy County and Maryland
