South Carolina Tenth Regiment Field and Staff


South Carolina Tenth Regiment

The 10th Regiment, South Carolina Infantry was organized in August 1861 for twelve months, but some of the companies appear to have been disbanded and others were added at various times until the regiment was finally composed of twelve companies. The men were from the Georgetown, Horry, Marion, Charleston, and Williamsburg Districts. It was reorganized for the war in May 1862 and temporarily consolidated with the 19th Regiment South Carolina Infantry (September 1863 to April 1864). This regiment formed six companies of the consolidated organization but each company of the original regiments was mustered separately. The 10th and the 19th Regiments, South Carolina Infantry were again consolidated about April 10, 1865, and formed the Walker’s Battalion, South Carolina Infantry. The unit served with the Army of Tennessee and surrendered on April 26, 1865
