Hello,
In all regimental histories of the 51st Georgia, it states their first engagement ever was at Secessionville in June of 1862. I even came across some information saying they only suffered one wounded man. Whenever I read about the battle, however, I never see the 51st mentioned in any order of battle or maps, etc. I know they were part of the 2nd Military District of South Carolina overall but I can't find anything on their whereabouts at the battle.

Can anyone help me out?

Here is a map from the old Blue & Gray Magazine on Secessionville. I’ve marked the 51st with the yellow arrow. Not much beyond skirmishing occurred in that part of the battlefield.
