1st Battalion Sharpshooters was organized with four companies during the spring of 1862. Some of the men were from De Kalb County. It served on the Georgia coast and was part of the garrison that defended Fort McAllister in February, 1863. During May the unit moved to Mississippi and under General Wilson took its place in the trenches of Jackson. Later it was transferred to the Army of Tennessee and attached to General C. H. Stevens' and H.R. Jackson's Brigade. For a time the battalion was united with the 25th Georgia Regiment and in December, 1863, the consolidated command totaled 341 men and 151 arms. It fought on many battlefields of the army from Chickamauga to Nashville and ended the war in North Carolina. On April 26, 1865, it surrendered with less than 35 officers and men. Majors Robert H. Anderson and Arthur Shaaff were in command.
