Regimental Brief History

Colonel Levi B. Smith served as the first commander of the Twenty-seventh Georgia Infantry, which was organized at Camp Stephens, near Griffin, in September 1861. The next month the unit was sent to Richmond and then to an encampment near Manassas. In March and April 1862 it was stationed at Clark's Mountain.

The Twenty-seventh remained in the vicinity of Charleston until February 1864, when it was sent to Florida. Charles T. Zachry led the unit at Olustee, where it suffered seventy-four casualties, seven killed and sixty-seven wounded. (A wartime book lists the casualties as eighty-seven killed and wounded.) The regiment was held in reserve in the first part of the battle, but when ordered forward around 4:00 p.m., it "immediately charg [ed] the enemy, contributing greatly to the utter rout and demoralization of the enemy."

Eventually sent back to Virginia in May 1864, the Twenty-seventh fought at Cold Harbor and Petersburg. Its final battle was at Bentonville, North Carolina in early 1865.
