The Twenty-seventh Regiment of Georgia Volunteer Infantry was organized at Camp Stephens, near Griffin, Georgia, and was mustered into the service of the Confederate States on the 9th and 10th days of September, 1861.
After the battle of Seven Pines a brigade was formed, consisting of the Sixth, Twenty-third, Twenty-seventh and Twenty-eighth Georgia Regiments, and the Thirteenth Alabama Regiment, General Featherstone commanding. In a few days, however, General Featherstone was assigned to duty elsewhere, and the command of the brigade devolved upon Colonel A. H. Colquitt, commanding the Sixth Georgia Regiment.
Colquitt's brigade fought throughout the war in Virginia except for an assignment south in 1863 where they fought at Ocean Pond (Olustee) and at the end of the war they were ordered to North Carolina. They ended the war fighting at Fort Fisher, Kinston, and Bentonville.
