Brief History

This unit was also known as the 4th Cavalry Reserves and also Company G of the 3rd Regiment, South Carolina Cavalry.

"Units of the Confederate States Army" by Joseph H. Crute, Jr. contains no history for this unit [1] .


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 62 men on its roster for this unit. Roster.
