6th Infantry Regiment was organized at Macon, Georgia, in April, 1861, and soon moved to Virginia. Its companies were recruited in the counties of Bibb, Crawford, Butts, Baker, Twiggs, Gilmer, Taylor, and Mitchell. Assigned to General Rains' Brigade, the regiment totalled 703 men in April, 1862, and was active at Williamsburg and Seven Pines. Later it transferred to General Colquitt's Brigade and remained under his command for the balance of the war. The 6th served with the Army of Northern Virginia from the Seven Days' Battles to Chancellorsville, then was ordered to North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida where it fought at Olustee. During the spring of 1864 it returned to Virginia, participated in the conflicts at Drewry's Bluff and Cold Harbor, and endured the battles and hardships of the trenches of Petersburg. Sent to North Carolina the unit saw action at Bentonville and surrendered with the Army of Tennessee. It lost 38 killed, 167 wounded, and 3 missing during the Seven Days' Battles and reported 43 casualties at Chancellorsville and 61 at Olustee. The field officers were Colonels Alfred H. Colquitt and John T. Lofton; Lieutenant Colonels Charles D. Anderson, William M. Arnold, Wilde C. Cleveland, Sampron W. Harris, and James M. Newton; and Majors James M. Culpepper and Phil Tracy.
