10th REGIMENT SOUTH CAROLINA VOLUNTEER INFANTRY

The 10th Infantry Regiment was organized at Camp Marion, White's Bridge near Georgetown, South Carolina in July 1861. Its soldiers were recruited from the counties of Georgetown, Horry, Williamsburg, Marion and Charleston. The regiment moved first, to Cat Island Redoubt, located between Winyah Bay and Santee River, where many of the men suffered from typhoid fever, measels and mumps. In March, 1862, the regiment was sent to Cornith, Mississippi, then on to the Kentucky Campaign. They were involved in the confederate victory of Munfordville in Kentucky, a station on the Louisville and Nashville Railroad and the location of the railroad bridge crossing Green River. During the war it was assigned to General Manigault's and Sharp's Brigade, and from September, 1863 to April, 1864, was consolidated with the 19th Regiment. The unit served with the Army of Tennessee from Murfreesboro, Stones River Campaign in Tennessee to the Atlanta Campaign of 1864 in Georgia. They were among the bravest of the heroes of that memorable Atlanta Campaign struggle, from Dalton to Ezra Church. It then endured Hood's winter Campaign in Franklin-Nashville, Tennessee. In 1865, the unit particiated in the Campaign of the Carolinas in Bentonsville, Johnston County, North Carolina. It lost 16 killed, 91 wounded, and 2 missing at Murfreesboro, and the 10th/19th had 236 killed or wounded at Chickamauga and totalled 436 men and 293 arms in December, 1863. During the Atlanta Campaign, July 20-28, the 10th Regiment lost 19 of 24 officers engaged and surrendered on April 26, 1865 in Bentonville, North Carolina, with no officers and 55 men.
