“Bethel Regiment to be Reorganized.”
EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT, N. CAROLINA,
ADJUTANT GENERAL’S OFFICE.
RALEIGH, January 27th, 1862.
The first Regiment of N. C. Volunteers being disbanded, a Regiment of Volunteers for the War will be formed, to take its place. All the companies of the old Regiment about to reorganize for the War are requested to report to this Office without delay, with the view of going in this Regiment, which will receive the “Bethel Flag.”
Additional Volunteer Companies for the war will be accepted, to whom a bounty of fifteen dollars per man will be paid by the State and fifty by the Confederate States. When a full company is tendered four Officers will be commissioned; with a less number appointments will be given as follows; A Captain for forty men; First Lieutenant for twenty-five; Second Lieutenant for fifteen.
The Militia who have been ordered on duty, and to be in readiness, can still avail themselves of this opportunity of getting into the Volunteer service, and the number so doing will be credited to their respective counties.
By order of Governor, H. T. CLARK.
J. G. MARTIN, Adjutant General.
