Company "C" 17th Ala. Regiment - Butler Co., AL

From: (Ronald Bridges), MAR 2000.



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.
