The Randolph Hornets in the Civil War
A History and Roster of Company M, 22nd North Carolina Regiment
About the Book
The turbulent years of 1861–1865 were especially rough for the people of Randolph County, North Carolina. Sentiment to stay in the Union was high, and remained so throughout the war, yet hundreds of Randolph County boys marched off to fight, many never to return. “The Randolph Hornets,” Company M, 22nd Regiment North Carolina Troops, earned a reputation for their grit and determination in battle.
This history of the Randolph Hornets includes articles written by Sergeant John T. Turner in 1914 recalling his experiences, and information on the company battle flag, its capture and its eventual return. A complete roster of the company includes genealogical information and short biographies for several of the men. The final chapter covers the local reenactment group based on the company.
