Unit Details:
31st Infantry Regiment [also called 27th Regiment] completed its organization in November, 1861, at Cusseta, Georgia. Its companies were from the counties of Muscogee, Chattahoochee, Monroe, Bartow, Pulaski, Dawson, and Newton. After serving Savannah it was ordered to Virginia and placed in Lawton's, John B. Gordon's, and C.A. Evans' Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia. The 31st participated in various conflicts from Seven Days' Battles to Cold Harbor, moved with Early to the Shenandoah Valley, and took part in the final campaign at Appomattox. It contained 1,200 men when organized, and reported 170 casualties at Gaines' Mill, 55 at Sharpsburg, 78 at Fredericksburg, and 23 at Chancellorsville. The regiment lost more than twenty-five percent of the 252 engaged at Gettysburg, and surrendered with 120, of which 66 were armed. The field officers were Colonel Clement A. Evans, John H. Lowe, and Pleasant J. Phillips; and Lieutenant Colonels John T. Crowder, Daniel P. Hill, and R.T. Pride.
