59th Georgia Regiment History
More 59th GA regiment info


59th Infantry Regiment was formed in the spring of 1862 with men from Jackson, Whitfield, Crawford, Worth, and Turner counties. After serving for some time in Georgia and North Carolina, the unit moved to Virginia. Early in 1863 it was attached to General G.T. Anderson's Brigade where it remained for the balance of the war. The 59th fought at Gettysburg, moved with Longstreet to assist Bragg at Chickamauga, then served in the Kentucky Campaign. Returning to Virginia, it took part in the conflicts at The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor, the Petersburg siege north of the James River, and the Appomattox operations. The unit lost more than twenty-five percent of the 525 engaged at Gettysburg and sustained 69 casualties from May 6 to April 14 and 85 from August 1 to December 31, 1864. Fifteen officers and 251 men were present at the surrender. Its field officers were Colonel Jack Brown; Lieutenant Colonels Bolivar H. Gee, Charles J. Harris, and George R. Hunter; and Majors Mastin G. Bass and William H. Fickling. --Joseph H. Crute, Jr.
