The exact number of military units which were formed in Georgia
is unknown. Some units changed names and / or were consolidated or
reorganized during the war and a few were disbanded without seeing service.
This list contains 364 known discreet units and is based on the inventory made by the National Archives of the various rosters and service records. It is possible that some of these units belong together as they were known by different names. As we determine those that should be consolidated, we will do so.
The total loss of the Confederate Armies in killed and mortally wounded will never be definitely known, and can be stated only in round numbers. A summing up of the casualties at each battle and minor engagement--using official reports only, and in their absence accepting Confederate estimates- indicates that 94,000 men were killed or mortally wounded on the Confederate side during the war.
This web site and The Civil War In Georgia CD-ROM
are dedicated to telling the stories of these men and their families.
