AUCILLA GUARDS--CAPTAIN WILLIAM BAILEY, JR. (Confederate)

Brief History[edit | edit source]

The Aucilla Guards were mustered into service 28 November 1861 by Captain William J. Baley, Jr., commanding the Post of St. Marks. Upon the formation of the 5th Regiment, in March 1862, this Company was dissolved and most of its members joined the 5th Regiment.  [1]   [2]

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin[edit | edit source]

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.

The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors database lists 55 men on its roster for this unit. Possibly this unit did not complete its organization, and the men went to other units. Roster.
