South Carolina 25th Regiment Infantry

Marion County men are known to have served in the South Carolina 25th Regiment Infantry - Company "D".

25th Infantry Regiment [also called Eutaw Regiment] was organized and mustered into Confederate service in July, 1862. It was formed with men of the 11th Battalion who were from Charleston and the middle region of the state. It served in the Charleston area assigned to the Department of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, and in September, 1863, it was placed in General Hagood's Brigade.

During the spring of 1864 the unit moved to Virginia and fought at Drewry's Bluff and Cold Harbor. Later it was involved in the Petersburg siege south and north of the James River and the North Carolina Campaign. The regiment lost 4 killed and 14 wounded at Secessionville, and there were 16 killed, 124 wounded, and 3 missing on Morris Island from July 10 to September 6, 1863. At this time it contained 36 officers and 491 men. In front of Petersburg, May 6-9, 1864, it reported 47 casualties and in the fight at the Weldon Railroad there were 2 killed, 29 wounded, and 70 missing.

All the men present at Fort Fisher were captured, and the few who later served in the regiment surrendered in April, 1865. The field officers were Colonel Charles H. Simonton, Lieutenant Colonel John G. Pressley, and Major John V. Glover.
