Evans' Brigade
Fairfield County's Part in Evans' Brigade
was in the 17th Regiment in
Company B Captain W. Preston Coleman's Company
Company D Captain James Beatty's Company
Reference 1: History of Fairfield County by F. H. McMaster page 125 said
there were 2 companies of the 17th Regt. which were from Fairfield County
and on page 133 it gave the roll of Co. B of the 17th,
but never gave what the other company from Fairfield County was.
Reference 2: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~york/17thSCV/Heroes.htm
also said there were 2 companies of the 17th Regt. which were from Fairfield County
& went on to say the captains of both companies: Captain W. P. Coleman & James Beatty
& said this Coleman's company was B, but left out the letter of Beatty's company.
Reference 3: http://www.geocities.com/BourbonStreet/Square/3873/b/reg17.html
showed Capt. James Beatty to be captain of Company D "of Chester Co."
so this allowed me to finally add D as the designation of the other company from Fairfield Co.

Reference 4: N.B., a James Beatty is shown as 1st Lt. of Pickens Guard on
page 129 of the History of Fairfield County by F. H. McMaster,
so Pickens Guard may be related to this Company D.
