Company C, thirty-seventh Va. Infantry. [from the Richmond, Va., dispatch, May 16, 1902.]

A list of the officers and privates and brief history.

To the Editor of the Dispatch:
Will you kindly publish in your Confederate Column the enclosed roll of Company C, 37th Regiment, Virginia Infantry? By so doing you will oblige the few survivors of that old company, which was as gallant as any that ever kept step to the music of ‘Dixie’ during the sixties.

And right here I want to thank the Dispatch for its generous defence of the worthy Confederate soldier. We claim the paper as our official organ, as some of us commenced reading it in the camps [186] and trenches around Richmond, and we value it greatly. I wish every Confederate was a subscriber to it.

The foregoing roll was made from memory by C. B. Price, a member of the old company, who now resides at Hansonville, Russell county, Va.

I have been at work on it for one year. If any name has been omitted or is spelled incorrectly, I hope it will be reported to me, as I wish the roster to be complete before it is impossible to get it, as the survivors will have soon passed away.

C. B. Price was corporal of Company C, 37th Regiment, Virginia Infantry.

Company C was enlisted in Russell county, Va., April, 1861, went immediately to the front, and was in the war from start to finish. [From the Richmond, Va., Times-Dispatch, Jan. 12, 1904.]
