11th Infantry Regiment










The 11th Florida Regiment was composed of the 4th Florida Battalion, seven companies, the companies of Captains Ochus and Robinson, of the 2nd Battalion, and Cullen's unattached company. There is some confusion in the records that makes the assignment of two of the companies in this Regiment uncertain. W. J. Robinson was Captain of Co. A; Adams A. Ochus, of Co. D; Charles Beggs, of Co. E; John Tanner, of Co. F; G. W. Bassett, of Co. G; W. E. Anderson, of Co. H; Joe J. Chaires, of Co. I; D. D. McLean, of Co. K. Like the 10th the story of the 11th follows closely that of the 9th until the fateful April 6, when this Regiment with the 5th and 8th, under the command of Colonel Brevard, was sent by Colonel Lang, then in command of the Brigade, Finnegan having been transferred to Florida, by order of General Lee to protect the wagon train. These Regiments were captured by General Custer's Cavalry. This accounts for the Regiment surrendering but 4 officers and 19 men on the morning of April 9 at Appomatox.
