    6th South Carolina Infantry Regiment

    6th South Carolina Infantry



    Hey, this is the 6th South Carolina Regiment from Jenkins' Brigade, one of the wildest groups participating in this divine struggle. My name is Lieutenant Colonel Dishonor, and I'm the leader of these righteous men. We strive to be the best shoe-stealing Yankee killers in the Confederate Army, and employ the use of line infantry tactics.

    The 6th South Carolina Infantry Regiment is a full member of Jenkins' Brigade along with the 2nd South Carolina Rifles, the 4th South Carolina Infantry Battalion, the 5th 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: 6th Infantry Regiment was ordered from Columbia, South Carolina, to Richmond, Virginia, on July 10, 1861. The men were from the counties of Fairfield, Chester, York, Darlington, Lancaster, and Lexington. It was engaged at Dranesville under J.E.B. Stuart, then was brigaded under Generals R.H. Anderson, M. Jenkins, and Bratton. The 6th fought with the army from Williamsburg to Fredericksburg, served with Longstreet at Suffolk, and later moved with D.H. Hill to North Carolina. Again with Longstreet, it did not arrive in time to take part in the Battle of Chickamauga but was engaged at Knoxville. Returning to Virginia, it participated in the conflicts at The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor, endured the hardships of the Petersburg trenches, and saw action around Appomattox. The regiment reported 18 killed and 45 wounded at Dranesville and in April, 1862, contained 550 officers and men. It lost 27 at Williamsburg and fifty-two percent of the 521 at Seven Pines, then sustained 100 casualties at Gaines' Mill and Frayser's Farm, 115 at Second Manassas, 58 during the Maryland Campaign, and 16 at Wauhatchie. In 1864 the unit lost 9 killed and 85 wounded during Wilderness Campaign, and from June 13 to December 31, there were 26 killed, 176 wounded, and 16 missing. On Apirl 9, 1865, it surrendered 30 officers and 328 men. The field officers were Colonels John Bratton, John M. Steedman, and Charles S. Winder; Lieutenant Colonels Andrew J. Secrest and John M. White; and Majors James L. Coker, Edward C. McLure, and Thomas W. Woodward.
