 Welcome to the

1st Battalion Georgia Sharpshooters

 

   

   

             " The unequal contest of four brigades against such overwhelming odds is

            unparalleled in this revolution, and the troops deserve immortal honor for

             the part borne in the action"

                                                                         Maj. Gen.  W.H.T. Walker

                                                         Chickamauga, Georgia  September 19, 1863

 

          

Russell K. Brown, author of "To the Manner Born -The Life of Gen. William H.T. Walker" has done a magnificent job putting all of our research together. The book  contains maps, drawings, and newly found photos. As well as, information from soldiers letters and journals never before published. As an added bonus, Mercer has decided to let us include the entire roster. 

The book has been released!!!!! To place an order go to http://www.mupress.org/webpages/books/brown2.html

or BarnesandNoble.com or Amazon.com where it's about $3.00 cheaper
