    2nd South Carolina Rifles Companies A, B, C, & D

    2nd South Carolina Rifles



    Hey, this is the 2nd South Carolina Rifles from Jenkins' Brigade, one of the rowdiest bunch of the war. My name is Captain Dark Knight, and I'm the leader of these fine men. We strive for the best rifle accuracy in the Confederate Army, and are also capable of using light infantry skirmish tactics.

    The 2nd South Carolina Rifles Infantry Regiment is a full member of Jenkins' Brigade along with the 4th South Carolina Infantry Battalion, the 5th South Carolina Infantry, the 6th South Carolina Infantry, and Brooks' Artillery Battery.

    Historically, our regiment served in Jenkins' Brigade with Jones' Division under Longstreet's Corps in the Army of Northern Virginia.

    FIND US: Please visit us on Discord here, or have a look at our companies on the War of Rights company tool, listed below. Our Youtube channel is here. We have no attendance requirement, and men are free to come and fight with us as they please. We train all of our men to an above-average basic standard regarding marching, rifle fire, and bayonet use, with auxiliary drills regarding more advanced tactics. We also participate in many of the events across the War of Rights community, including North American and European time zone-friendly events.

    Historical info:
    2nd Infantry Regiment [also called 2nd Palmetto Regiment] completed its organization near Richmond, Virginia, in May, 1861. The men were from Columbia, Camden, and Charleston, and the counties of Sumter, Richland, Greenville, Kershaw, and Lancaster. After fighting in Bonham's Brigade at First Manassas, the unit served under Generals Toombs, Kershaw, Kennedy, and Conner. It participated in many conflicts of the army from the Seven Days' Battles to Cold Harbor except when it was detached with Longstreet at Chickamauga and Knoxville. The 2nd was active in Early's Shenandoah Valley operations and ended the war in North Carolina. It reported 5 killed and 43 wounded at First Manassas, and lost eighteen percent of the 338 at Savage's Station, twenty percent of the 203 at Malvern Hill, thirty-seven percent of the 253 at Sharpsburg, and forty-one percent of the 412 at Gettysburg. The regiment sustained 10 casualties at Bentonville and totalled 184 men on March 23, 1865. It surrendered with the Army of Tennessee. The field officers were Colonels Ervine P. Jones, John D. Kennedy, and Joseph B. Kershaw; Lieutenant Colonels Franklin Gaillard, A.D. Goodwyn, and William Wallace; and Major Benjamin R. Clyburn.

    Civil War Fact #1


    After the battle of Gettysburg, at least 27,574 rifles were recovered, although some sources claim the number to be as high as 37,000. Of the weapons that were salvaged, an incredible 24,000 rifles were still loaded (that’s either 87% or 63%, depending on which estimate you accept.) Of the total number, half had been loaded more than once, and a quarter had been reloaded multiple times. Apparently, one poor soldier had reloaded his weapon twenty-three times, but the weird thing is that he never fired a single shot.

    Very interesting read.

    Civil War Fact #2

    After the Battle of Shiloh in 1862, soldiers reported a peculiar phenomenon: glow-in-the-dark wounds. More than 16,000 soldiers from both armies were wounded during the battle, and neither Union nor Confederate medical personnel were prepared for the carnage. Soldiers lay in the mud for two rainy days, and many of them noticed that their wounds glowed in the dark. In fact, the injured whose wounds glowed seemed to heal better than the others. In 2001, two Maryland teenagers solved the mystery (and won a top prize at an international science fair). The wounded became hypothermic, and their lowered body temperatures made ideal conditions for a bioluminescent bacterium called Photorhabdus luminescens, which inhibits pathogens.

    Civil War Fact #3

    In the 1950s, author Stefan Lorant was researching a book on Abraham Lincoln when he came across an image of the President’s funeral procession as it moved down Broadway in New York City. The photo was dated April 25, 1865. At first it appeared like one of any number of photographs of Lincoln’s funeral procession, until he identified the house on the corner as that of Cornelius van Schaack Roosevelt, the grandfather of future President Teddy Roosevelt and his brother Elliot. In the second story window of the Roosevelt mansion he noticed the heads of two boys are peering out onto Lincoln’s funeral procession. Guess who they were..........
