Company K of this regiment was recruited in Union County, and was mustered into the service with H. C. Hamilton, Captain; J. C. Cline, First Lieutenant; Thomas L. Evans, Second Lieutenant; M. G.

Thirteen men were recruited for this company in the fall of 1863 and winter of 1864 by Sergt. Liggett, making a total mustered into this company from Union County of 115.
