9th Regiment, Georgia Infantry

9th Infantry Regiment, organized during the late spring of 1861, contained men from Wilkinson, Walton, Chattooga, Clay, Talbot, Baldwin, Fayette, Brooks, Troup, and Sumter counties. Ordered to Virginia the unit was assigned to General G.T. Anderson's Brigade and remained under his command for the duration of the war. It fought with the Army of Northern Virginia from the Seven Days' Battles to Cold Harbor, except when it was with Longstreet at Suffolk, in Georgia, and at Knoxville. The regiment did not arrive in time to take part in the fight at Chickamauga. It was involved in the Petersburg siege south and north of the James River and later the Appomattox Campaign. This unit had 411 effectives in April, 1862, lost 8 killed and 41 wounded during the Seven Days' Battles, and had 12 killed and 116 wounded at Second Manassas. Its casualties at Gettysburg were more than fifty percent of the 340 engaged. From April 14 to May 6, there were 105 disabled, and from August 1 to December 31, 1864, it lost 63 killed or wounded. The regiment surrendered with 15 officers and 174 men. Its commanders were Colonels Benjamin Beck, E.R. Goulding, Edward F. Hoge, and Richard A. Turnipseed; Lieutenant Colonels John C.L. Mounger, Sr., and John G. Webb; and Majors John W. Arnold and William M. Jones.
