2nd Engineers Regiment
2nd Engineers Regiment was assembled during the
summer of 1863 with men from almost every Confederate state east
of the Mississippi River. This regiment did not serve as one command.
Companies A and E were stationed at Fort Fisher, North Carolina;
Companies B, F, and I were at Forts Gaines and Morgan, Alabama;
Company D was at Fort McAllister, Georgia; and Companies C, G,
H, and K were with the forces in Virginia. These four companies,
for the most part, served under Colonel T. M. R. Talcott of the
1st Engineers Regiment. The companies surrendered with the army
or department in which they served, and those with the Army of
Northern Virginia totaled 97 officers and men. Major D. Winner
was in command.
