CATAWBA COUNTY REGIMENTS

     

Company K, 46th REGIMENT, N.C. TROOPS

This company, known as the "Catawba Braves," was raised in Catawba County and enlisted at Newton on March 13, 1862. It was mustered in at Camp Mangum, near Raleigh, April 16, 1862, and was assigned to the 46th Regiment N.C. Troops as Company K. The company functioned thereafter as a part of the 46th Regiment, and its history for the remainder of the war is reported as a part of the regimental history.

The information contained in the following roster was compiled primarily from a company muster-in and descriptive roll dated April 16, 1862, and from company muster rolls for July 1, 1862-June 30, 1863, and September 1, 1863-December 31, 1864. No company muster rolls were located for May 1-June 30, 1862; July 1-August 31, 1863; or for the period after December 31, 1864. Valuable information was obtained from primary records such as the North Carolina adjutant general's Roll of Honor, discharge certificates, medical records, prisoner of war records, newspaper casualty lists, and pension applications. Secondary sources such as postwar rosters and histories, cemetery records, and records of the United Daughters of the Confederacy also provided useful information.
