*Formed from The Charleston Battalion and The First S.C. Sharpshooters in September of 1863. Defended Ft. Sumter in 1863 and surrendered with The Army of Tennessee.

^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.

+Blake and Abney disappointed Hagood at Drewry Bluff.

@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.
