New Feature

Today I'm going to start a North Carolina Order of Battle. Beginning at First Manassas and ending at Bentonville. North Carolina Troops at the Battle of First Manassas, July 21, 1861.

Army of the Shenandoah:

3rd Brigade (Brig. Gen. Barnard E. Bee)
6th North Carolina

Army of the Potomac:

1st Brigade (Brig. Gen. Milledge L. Bonham)
11th North Carolina

Does not seem like a lot of North Carolinians. I have read many accounts from members of different regiments describing their arrival to the Richmond - Manassas area as occurring right after the First Battle of Manassas.
