Tracing the History of the First Georgia Volunteer Infantry (Ramsey’s) and the commands to which it belonged.
"Peculiarly distinguished among the advance guard, where all were distinguished, must be recorded . . . Private J. W. Brown, of Company F, First Georgia Regiment, who, upon hearing the order to fall back, exclaimed, 'I will give them one more shot before I leave,' and while ramming down his twenty-ninth cartridge fell dead at his post." - General Henry R. Jackson in his report of the Battle of Greenbrier River.

For those who have been trying to access my website at
www.ramseysfirstgeorgia.com and not succeeding, my apologies. The site has been hosted by Office Live Small Business for several years, but Microsoft will be shutting down that service on April 30 and replace it with Office 365. So for the past several weeks I've been struggling to move my site to the new server. I've gotten most of the bugs worked out and the new site is up, but incomplete as I continue to move my information from the old to new, and reformat so it looks halfway decent. Thanks for your patience.
The new site is up and running with still a few tweaks to complete. If you had bookmarked the site, please delete the bookmark and add it again, as the internal site has changed slightly.
I have had a lifelong interest in reading about and researching the War Between the States. I enjoyed reenacting for eighteen years, most of that time with the 7th Florida Infantry (recreated). My ancestor, William Henry Marshall, served in the Dahlonega Volunteers, Company “H” of the First Georgia Volunteer Infantry Regiment (Ramsey's).
