48th Infantry Regiment completed its organization in March, 1862, at Camp Mangum, near Raleigh, North Carolina. Men of this unit were recruited in the counties of Union, Davidson, Iredell, Moore, Chatham, and Forsyth. Ordered to Virginia, the regiment was assigned to General J.G. Walker's and Cooke's Brigade. It fought with the Army of Northern Virginia from the Seven Days' Battles to Fredericksburg, then moved to Pocataligo, South Carolina, where it was stationed until August, 1863. Returning to Virginia, the 48th was involved in the conflicts at Bristoe, The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor. It then endured the hardships of the Petersburg siege south of the James River and the Appomattox operations. It reported 18 killed and 70 wounded at Oak Grove, lost over fifty percent of the 400 in the Maryland Campaign, and sustained 175 casualties at Fredericksburg and 123 at Bristoe. The unit surrendered with 12 officers and 87 men. Its commanders were Colonels Robert C. Hill and Samuel H. Walkup; Lieutenant Colonel Albert A. Hill; and Majors B.R. Huske, William H. Jones, and Francis L. Wiatt.
