County Soldiers (both sides)

The following listing is taken from published regimental histories and government documents to be just persons who fought in the Civil War from Jefferson County, W. Va., then Va. It is overwhelmingly a Confederate group in part because local persons taking the Union position enlisted outside the County in West Virginia, Maryland; in the United States Colored Troops and Loudoun’s Rangers. Local persons wanting to fight in the Federal force could also be arrested here for treason after hostilities became “official.”

This compilation benefits from the vast research of Dennis Frye, the chief historian of the National Historic Park in Harper’s Ferry, WV, who wrote a book apiece on the regimental histories of the 2nd Virginia Infantry and 12th Virginia Cavalry. For his contribution to our knowledge of the Civil War in this county and immediate area, we are all indebted.
