27th Infantry Regiment was formed at Charleston, South Carolina, in September, 1863, by consolidating the Charleston Infantry Battalion and the 1st South Carolina Battalion Sharpshooters. The unit was assigned to General Hagood's Brigade, served at Fort Sumter, then moved to Virginia. Here it participated in the conflicts at Drewry's Bluff and Cold Harbor, and took its place in the Petersburg trenches. The 27th ended the war in North Carolina. It reported 8 killed, 22 wounded, and 113 missing at Deep Bottom, and had 2 killed, 22 wounded, and 71 missing at the Weldon Railroad. Its force was greatly reduced when the Army of Tennessee surrendered. The field officers were Colonel Peter C. Guillard, Lieutenant Colonel Julius A. Blake, and Major Joseph Abney.
