44th Virginia at Shenandoah, 1864

Fewer ads. Lots of American Civil War content!


Jan 12, 2013
For the upcoming Shenandoah, 1864 event we are putting together a group to portray the 44th Virginia Infantry during the Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1864. The 44th Virginia was formed in 1861 and had fought in the Valley with Jackson then with the Army of Northern Virginia through Cold Harbor. The regiment was in the Mule Shoe at Spotsylvania and most were captured during the assault on the Mule Shoe on May 12th. The few who escaped capture were merged together and came with General Early to the Shenandoah Valley in June. It fought through the Shenandoah Valley Campaign from Lynchburg to Cedar Creek, before returning to the Army of Northern Virginia in December. Based off primary accounts and muster roll records, the regiment had about 54 officers and men serve during the fall of 1864. The goal is to form a battalion to the actual size the regiment had in 1864. We will strive to accurately portray the regiment through every manner. Anyone who wishes to join in are welcomed to. We will be filling the ranks until we get 54, then it will be cut off. If you have any questions, contact me or joined our Facebook group “44th Virginia at Shenandoah, 1864” for more information.

Your Obedient Servant,

J. C. Settle

Capt., commanding, 44th Virginia Infantry.
