59th Georgia Regiment History

Hello,
The muster roll for F Company of the 59th Ga. follows. If I can answer any questions, let me know. I maintain a website on the 9th Georgia, a "sister" regiment of the 59th. The 7th, 8th, 9th, 11th and 59th were in Gen George T. "Tige" Anderson's Brigade of Longstreet's Corps, Army of Northern Va. The 59th replaced the 1st Georgia Regulars of Anderson's Brigade in Dec. of 1862, and they were together the rest of the war. ---Neal Griffin 9th GA Infantry
