Confederate Legacy-- Part 9: Companies C, D and H, 2nd NC

These units had over 100 men from Wayne County and served with distinction from Malvern Hill to Antietam to Chancellorsville to Spotsylvania Courthouse.  The names of its men are also familiar to the county.

In all, the three companies lost 30 men killed in action.  The battles listed were particularly deadly and many died during Jackson's famous flank march at Chancellorsville.

Company H left Wayne County with 82 men and 4 surrendered at Appomattox.
