*Hagood's Brigade was attached to Hoke's Divison, Anderson's Fourth Corps (from October to December, 1864) and detached to Wilmington with Hoke's Division. This Regiment was completely destroyed at Ft. Fisher, few men escaped.

@Hagood's Old Brigade consisted of about a regiment. This unit was consolidated under the command of Lt. Col. Rion of the Seventh Battalion. Joined with other odd units it formed the final version of Hagood's Brigade.
