27th Regiment, North Carolina Infantry 

27th Infantry Regiment was formed at New Bern, North Carolina, in June, 1861, as the 9th 
Regiment. Reorganized in September as the 17th, its designation was later changed to the 
27th. Men of this unit were recruited in Orange, Guilford, Wayne, Pitt, Lenoir, Perquimans, 
and Jones counties. It was assigned to General R. Ransom's, J.G. Walker's, and Cooke's 
Brigade. After fighting at New Bern, the 27th saw action in the Seven Days' Battles and at 
Sharpsburg and Fredericksburg. During the spring and summer of 1863 it served in North 
Carolina, South Carolina, and in the Richmond area. The unit continued the fight at Bristoe, 
The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor, and later endured the hardships of the 
Petersburg siege south of the James River. It ended the war at Appomattox. It had 6 wounded 
at Malvern Hill, lost sixty-three percent of the 325 engaged at Sharpsburg, and had 2 killed and 
13 wounded at Fredericksburg. Seventy percent of the 416 at Bristoe were disabled, and when 
the regiment surrendered, it had 9 officers and 103 men. The field officers were Colonels John 
R. Cooke, J.A. Gilmer, Jr., George B. Singeltary, John Sloan, and George F. Whitfield; 
Lieutenant Colonels R.W. Singeltary, Thomas C. Singeltary, and Joseph C. Webb; and Major 
Calvin Herring.
