Nelson’s, Townsend’s, Wallace’s, and Warren’s. Most of these companies were formed
for local or special service. Duke’s and Luke’s companies took part in action at Fort Hatteras
in August 1861.
A well-researched history of each battalion/company is followed by a complete roster and
service records for all who served in the unit. A thorough index concludes the volume.
