The Twenty-first regiment Georgia volunteers was organized with John T. Mercer as colonel, James J. Morrison, lieutenant-colonel, and T. W. Hooper, major. The adjutant was T. J. Verdery.

Ackridge (K). The Twenty-first served in the army of Northern Virginia, acting a gallant part in the many great battles in which it was engaged. Col. John T. Moore being killed in battle, was succeeded by Thomas W. Hooper. Lieutenant-Colonel Morrison was followed by Hooper; T. C. Glover, who had succeeded Hooper as major on his first promotion, became lieutenant-colonel when Hooper was promoted to the command of the regiment. When Glover became lieutenant-colonel, M. Lynch became major. Adjutant Verdery was followed by L. F. Bakewell. Captain Glover was followed by W. M. Butt, who was killed in battle. Captain Kinman was succeeded by N. B. Hudgins, and Nisbet by John B. Countiss. The Twenty-first was one of the regiments commanded by the gallant General Doles, who fell at the second battle of Cold Harbor.
