32nd Regiment, North Carolina Infantry (Lenoir Braves) 

32nd Infantry Regiment was organized at Drewry's Bluff, Virginia, in 
April, 1862, using the 1st North Carolina Infantry Battalion as its nucleus. 
Its companies were raised in the counties of Tyrrell, Nash, Camden, 
Northampton, Catawba, Bertie, Chatham, and Franklin. The unit was 
stationed near Petersburg and Drewry's Bluff during the fall of 1862, 
then returned to North Carolina. Here it served in and around Kinston 
until May, 1863, when it moved back to Virginia. Assigned to General 
Daniel's and Grimes' Brigade it fought in various conflicts from Gettysburg 
to Cold Harbor, saw action in the Shenandoah Valley with Early, and 
ended the war at Appomattox. This regiment lost thirty-five percent of the 
454 engaged at Gettysburg and sustained 3 casualties at Bristoe and 3 
at Mine Run. It surrendered with 4 officers and 110 men on April 9, 1865. 
The field officers were Colonels Edmund C. Brabble, David G. Cowand, 
and Henry C. Lewis, and Lieutenant Colonel William T. Williams. 

1st Infantry Battalion was formed during the spring of 1861 with six 
companies. The unit served at Portsmouth, in eastern North Carolina, then 
the Petersburg area before merging into the 32nd North Carolina Regiment. 
Its commanders were Lieutenant Colonel William T. Williams and Major 
Edmund C. Brabble.
