Company "C" 17th Alabama Infantry Regiment, organized in Butler Co., AL, was also called the "Blue Rifles". I went to the Alabama Archives on 16 Mar 2000 and found the muster roll for this company. J. M typed it. There was no last name for J. M. I have footnote numbers beside some names in the newspaper article. The footnotes refer to additional information or different information that was in the muster roll at the Archives. At the end of the article I added names that were on the muster roll but not in the newspaper article. The muster roll states that the Company was organized on 14 Sep 1861. The Greenville Advocate April 30, 1903 "THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES - COMPANY C 17TH ALA.
