On Wednesday, July 17, 1861, Colonel Hoke, with seven companies of the regiment, left the Camp of Instruction at Garysburg, N. C., for Virginia, leaving three companies, viz: C, D and H behind, because of the much sickness (measles) among the men. These seven companies reached Manassas Junction on the 21st of July, while the battle was raging, but took no part therein as they were not ordered to the field.
