This company of 16 year old boys left Lancaster District for service in the war during the Fall of 1864, under the command of Captain J D Caskey. The company was ordered to rendezvous at Hamburg, S.C. early in September, 1864 with three other companies (F thru H), all under the command of Lieutenant Colonel William P Gill. With the invasion by Sherman's hordes, they were activated into Chesnut's Brigade for the Campaign of the Carolinas. The unit surrendered in May 1965 at Cheraw, SC.
An account of the history of the company was given by Mr. John Q. Cousart, a private in this unit, in the 1 June 1892 issue of the Lancaster Enterprise.
This roll was compiled from a payroll of the Company, dated 2nd of March 1865, which was in the possession of Mr. W. P. Caskey.
Birth and Death Information was compiled from various sources by W A 'Bil' Brasington, Houston, TX, great grandson of John Samuel Brasington, Private in this Company.
Least we forget the total committment of our ancestors to our rights and freedom.
