CSPR-02 Standard Bearer, 4th South Carolina, Palmetto Riflemen
John Jenkins CSPR-02 Standard Bearer, 4th South Carolina, Palmetto Riflemen
The Palmetto Riflemen were raised in Anderson in 1861, South Carolina and were designated as Co. B, 4th South Carolina Infantry. By 1862 the regiment was re-organized as the 4th South Carolina Battalion, but by the end of that year it had been consolidated into two companies that became Cos. I and K of Hampton’s Legion. Local women made the dark grey frock coats and trousers during February 1861, and an entry in the local “minute book” stated that the brass PR should be worn on the Hardee hats.
