The Danville Grays

The table below details the 160 men of the original 18th Virginia Infantry, Company B, known as the Danville Grays. The information was taken from images of the compiled military service records held by the National Archives. The total number of men is slightly misleading as it includes several bounty jumpers and men who quickly transferred to other units. The most prevalent occupations given are 23 mechanics, 20 clerks, and 16 farmers. The highest number of casualties were suffered at Gaines’ Mill (14) and Gettysburg (13). The data can be sorted by clicking on any of the header rows or searched using the search box above the upper right corner.
