Over 2,000 men were recruited for this regiment from the counties of Robeson, Rowan, Warren, Richmond, Granville, Moore, Randolph, Sampson, and Catawba, throughout 1861-1865! The 46th North Carolina persevered over three years of unbelievable hardship - valorously, and under constant threat of death! Honoring all North Carolina's past and present! Part of the real life story is given to us, through the memoirs and diary of Brigadier General Edward Dudley Hall, Commanding Cooke's Brigade, ANV of Wilmington, New Hanover County. Every attempt has been made to a fully represent our regiment in this book, to include a Regiment Roster of all officers and men who selfishly served their state, their conscience and the Confederacy!
