Historical Sketch and Roster of the Georgia 15th Infantry Regiment by John C. Rigdon

The men of the Georgia 15th Infantry Regiment were recruited throughout north central Georgia in the summer of 1861. The Fifteenth served throughout the war in the army of Northern Virginia except during the time that it was engaged in the Chickamauga and east Tennessee campaigns under Longstreet in the fall of 1863 and early spring of 1864.
In describing their actions following Sharpsburg (Antietam), General Lee said:

In reviewing the achievements of the army during the present campaign, the commanding general cannot withhold the expression of his admiration of the indomitable courage displayed in battle and its cheerful endurance of privation and hardship on the march. Since your great victories around Richmond, you have defeated the enemy at Cedar Mountain, expelled him from the Rappahannock, and after a conflict of three days, utterly repulsed him on the plains of Manassas, and forced him to take shelter within the fortifications around his capital. Without halting for repose, you crossed the Potomac, stormed the heights of Harper's Ferry, made prisoners of more than 11,000 men, and captured upward of seventy five pieces of artillery, all their small arms and other munitions of war.
