    The Georgia 24th Infantry Regiment, organized during the summer of 1861, recruited its members in White, Banks, Towns, Rabun, Gwinnett, Elbert, and Hall counties. After serving in the Department of North Carolina, the unit moved to Virginia where it was brigaded under Generals H. Cobb, T.R.R. Cobb, Wofford, and DuBose. It fought in the difficult campaigns of the Army of Northern Virginia from the Seven Days' Battles to Gettysburg, then moved to Georgia with Longstreet. The 24th was not engaged at Chickamauga, but did see action in the Knoxville Campaign. Returned to Virginia it participated in the conflicts at The Wilderness , Spotsylvania , and Cold Harbor , was active in the Shenandoah Valley, and ended the war at Appomattox . In April, 1862, this regiment totalled 660 effectives, lost forty-three percent of the 292 engaged at Crampton's Gap, and had 4 killed, 39 wounded, and 2 missing at Sharpsburg. It sustained 36 casualties at Fredericksburg , reported 14 killed and 73 wounded at Chancellorsville , and of the 303 at Gettysburg, seventeen percent were disabled.
