Union Soldiers from Hardy County

Submitted by Michael Foreman

The following enlisted in the Union Army at Greenland Gap, Hardy County West Virginia. Many were from Hardy County and most were placed in Company I of the 7th WV Regiment. I found this information in the Adjutant General Report for 1864.

The 7th WV Infantry was known as The Bloody 7th as they had highest causualty rate of all WV units. They were the only WV unit in The Army of the Potomac and fought in every major battle in the east including Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, The Wilderness, Cold Harbor, siege of Petersburg and Appomattox.
