Units in Romney and Hampshire County

During the Civil War

Project for the Sesquicentennial of
the Civil War in Historic Hampshire County is trying to amass a list of all military units (Confederate and Union) that served in the bounds of present Hampshire County during Civil War. The information shown on this page has been gathered from various sources; unfortunately, the names of some sources have been lost. We began our list with units in Romney since that was the best researched listing. We are endeavoring to include units that served anywhere in Hampshire County. We appreciate anyone forwarding further information to us. Please include the reference for your information.
