57th Regiment, Georgia Infantry,
Company K, "Oconee Greys"

"B" Co. GA 2nd Inf State Troops

57th Infantry Regiment [also called 54th Regiment] was organized during the spring of 1862. Many of its members were recruited in Troup, Peach, Montgomery, and Oconee counties. This unit served in East Tennessee and Kentucky, then moved to Mississippi where it was assigned to T.H. Taylor's Brigade in the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana. It fought at Champion's Hill and was captured in July, 1863, at Vicksburg. Exchanged and placed in General Mercer's and J.A. Smith's Brigade, the 57th was active in many conflicts from Resaca to Bentonville. During the Atlanta Campaign, from July 20 to September 1, it reported 54 casualties and in December, 1864, totalled 120 effectives. Only a remnant surrendered on April 26, 1865. Colonel William Barkuloo, Lieutenant Colonel Cincinnatus S. Guyton, and Major John W. Shinholser were in command. (Civil War Sailors and Soldiers System)

      "In October 1861 two other companies were organized in Wilkinson County, one commanded by Captain R.L. Story and the other by Captain H. K. Byington. These companies were armed with shotguns and other arms as could be borrowed from the citizens of the county. Both companies were sent first to Camp Harrison and then near Savannah for training. Here the men were armed with rifles. These companies having enlisted for only six months, their term of enlistment expiring in April 1862, the companies re-enlisted in toto, but their being an insufficient number of companies in their old regiment, and lacking only one to complete it, it was decided that twenty-five men from each of these companies together with detachments from Laurens County should form another company.  This was known as Company I, with Captain Bishop commanding. The original companies were designated as Companies D and K, all three companies being incorporated in the 57th Georgia Regiment."

CAMP LIBERTY, Wilkinson County, Ga., July the 21st, 1861
  At a meeting held by the Oconee Grays to-day, Capt. J. W. Shinholser in the chair, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted.
  Resolved, That we the members of the Oconee Grays, before striking our tents, to retrn to our homes make a public acknowledgement to our friends, for the kindness and liberality they have manifested to us during our weeks encampment. And while we return our gratitude and thanks to the people of this community at lage, we would not forget to mention more particularly, the names of our friends James Stevens, James Jackson, S. J. Stubbs and R. N. Parker, who contributed so largely to our wants and comfort; and we hope their garners may be as bountifully supplied as those who seemed to feel the times too hard to contribute at all, - but we hope they fell none the less interested in our country's cause, and common struggle for liberty.
  And we beg leave to return our warmest thanks to Prof. Lane  of the Oglethorpe University, who cheered us in our camps on Thursday with one of his able sermons from the test- "And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying: and what shall we do." And we feel truly grateful to hime for the presentation of twenty-six testaments which he put  in charge of our Captain, requesting him to put two in each camp chest when the company shall be called into service.
  We aslo beg leave to return our warmest thanks to Mr. E. Cumming, of Irwinton, Rev. Mr. Parrot, the representative of the Bundridge Rifles, Leiut. H. K. Byington, the representative of the Oconee Grays, Maj. W. Napier, of Baldwin, and J. T. Huges, of Wilkinson, for the able and patriotic speeches made by them to the soldiers and citizens in attendance on Thursday.
   And in conclusion, we would like to thank all of our friends who took so deep an interest in our enjoyment on Thursday. And when we are call into service, as we ram the cartridge and draw the sword upon the field of battle, the remembrances of these friends will give us firm hearts and strong arm to meet successfully the foe. OCONEE GRAYS.
