Unit Details:
50th Infantry Regiment was organized at Savannah, Georgia, during the spring of 1862. Its members were recruited in the counties of Ware, Coffee, Lowndes, Thomas, De Kalb, Clinch, Colquitt, Berrien, and Brooks. After serving in the District of Georgia, the 50th moved to Virginia and was assigned to General Drayton's, Semmes', Bryan's, and Simms' Brigade. It participated in the campaigns of the Army of Northern Virginia from Second Manassas to Gettysburg, then was ordered back to Georgia. However, the unit did not arrive in time to share in the Battle of Chickamauga. It was involved in the Knoxville operations and later the conflicts at The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor. The regiment fought with Early in the Shenandoah Valley and ended the war at Appomattox. There were 29 killed and 97 wounded at Sharpsburg and 17 killed and 153 wounded at Chancellorsville. It lost thirty percent of the 302 engaged at Gettysburg, had many disabled at Sayler's Creek, and surrendered with 1 captain, 2 lieutenants, 2 surgeons, and 25 men. The field officers were Colonels William R. Manning and Peter McGlashan; Lieutenant Colonels William O. Fleming, Francis Kearse, and Pliny Sheffield; and Majors Duncan Curry, P.C. Pendleton, and John M. Spence.
