Brief History[edit | edit source]

1st Regiment, North Carolina Infantry, usually known as the Bethel Regiment was oganized at Raleigh, North Carolina, in May, 1861. It disbanded and returned to North Carolina on November 12, 1861. Many of the men transferred to the 11th North Carolina Regiment.[1]

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 companies in the regiment came  from the counties of Edgecombe, Meckleburg, Orange, Buncombe, Cumberland, Burke, Guilford and Lincoln counties.[2]
