The 16th Georgia Infantry may be the most interesting regiment that hasn’t been written about. The soldiers of the 16th arrived in Richmond in June and July of 1861. Why weren’t they ordered to march out until mid October 1861? What is unique about how the regiment was outfitted with firearms? Why was Brig Gen Howell Cobb unable to command at Sharpsburg? What is interesting about the man who was temporarily in command after T.R.R. Cobb was mortally wounded behind the stone wall at Fredericksburg? How were two members of the regiment killed near the PA/New York State line when there was no battle there? What is the connection of this regiment to the comedy team Laurel and Hardy? The visual presentation includes lots of interesting stories, a number of unusual connections, and plenty of unique images. Those interested in this particular regiment, Civil War history in general, or those who just have a passing interest, will find the history of this regiment intriguing.
