This company, known as the “Perquimans  Beauregards” was raised in Perquimans County and enlisted at Hertford in Perquimans County. The company was composed initially of both infantry and cavalry contingents but was soon converted to a standard infantry organization. The company was mustered in on May 16, 1861; it remained in camp in Perquimans County until ordered to New Bern on July 3. On July 19 the company departed on board the steamer Curlew and traveled to New bern via the Perquimans River, Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds, and the Neuse River. Upon its arrival the company was assigned to a battalion which later became the 27th Regiment, N. C. Troops (Infantry) and the Perquimans Beauregards became Company F of that unit. After joining the regiment, the company functioned as a part of the regiment, and its history for the war period is reported as a part of the regimental history.

NOTES from Bob Stokley – Hopefully this transcription is error free. I am sure that in the approximately 20 pages there are some typos and other errors. Although I am confident all of the transcribed information is reliable, North Carolina Troops 1861-1865…should be consulted as the final source.

More information on the 27th N.C. Infantry Reg. can be found in North Carolina Troops 1861-1865 “A” Roster,Volume VIII INFANTRY 27th-31st Regiments. This book was compiled by: Weymouth T. Jordan,Jr. There are about 97 pages on information on the 27th Regiment.
