CONFEDERATE UNITS FROM COLQUITT COUNTY:

We honor all those who served with honor in the Georgia Regiments, but in particular we wish to honor our local regiments:

Company H, 50th Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry -“Colquitt Marksmen/Colquitt Volunteers”, formed 4 March1862

Company C, 11th Regiment, Georgia State Guard Cavalry, “Tillman’s Company”, formed August 1863

Companies E & G, 12th Regiment, Georgia Militia, formed in March 1864

26 April 1903

75 Colquitt County Confederate Veterans are pictured here gathering on the Courthouse steps to receive their Southern Cross of Honor from the Moultrie Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. 22 additional medals were presented later that year.

The Flag about 48″ square, one side has a sleeve for a pole, not the standard ties and is of cotton bunting. Note the orientation of the stars.

    Recently Christmas 2016, I adopted two soldiers buried at the Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond Va. Lt. John MD Burnside K Company 48th GA Infantry. Who died at Gettysburg and Pvt William F.Lewis, Co B 28th ND Inf who died at Gettysburg. Burnside was 27 and Lewis 21 years. At Christmas they both received a large wreath on stands at their graves in respect for their service. Every year as long as I can, I will do this. Perhaps others would consider adopting a soldier and celebrate Christmas. I have photos of the event.
