66th Infantry Regiment was organized at Kinston, North Carolina, in October, 1862, by consolidating the 8th North Carolina Battalion Partisan Rangers and the 13th North Carolina Infantry Battalion. Its men were from the counties of Orange, Nash, Franklin, Wayne, Lenoir, Carteret, Jones, Duplin, and New Hanover. The unit was stationed at Wilmington, then in May, 1864, moved to Virginia. Attached to General J.G. Martin's and Kirkland's Brigade, it fought at Cold Harbor, was placed in the trenches of Petersburg, and saw action at Bentonville. On April 26, 1865, it surrendered with the Army of Tennessee. The field officers were Colonels Alexander D. Moore and John H. Nethercutt, Lieutenant Colonel Clement G. Wright, and Major David S. Davis.


8th Battalion Partisan Rangers was formed during the spring of 1863 using Nethercutt's Company of Partisan Rangers as its nucleus. The unit contained four companies and served in the New Bern-Kinston area of North Carolina until October when it merged into the 66th North Carolina Regiment. Its commander was Major John H. Nethercutt.
