These compiled names of the 182 individuals listed below are known to have served in the 50th Virginia, Company D during the Civil War.  Undoubtedly due to incompleteness or absentia of records there may be some omissions or possible errors.  Where two ranks are given, the first listed is the mustered in rank and then followed by their last known rank at end of their Confederate service.

Since mustering into service the company would be commanded by three captains beginning with Lynville J. Perkins in 1861, followed by Thomas Jefferson Baldwin in early 1863, and lastly by James L. Bishop in early 1864 to the conclusion of  hostilities at the end of the war, April 12th, 1865 when the 50th Virginia Regiment disbanded.

According to records there were known to be that at least 1,734 men that served in the 50th Virginia Regiment of all companies.  Men killed in action or died of wounds totaled at least 148, disease killing at least 116, and another 33 died of unknown causes.  Five died in accidents and 125 are known to have died in Union prisons.  At least 290 were known to have been wounded in action.  With at least 290 men that were known to have been wounded in action added to the 427 men that died in service in the regiment, the total comprises over 40% of the casualties of the 50th Virginia Regiment experienced throughout the war.  If one was to also include the amount of men missing in action and those absent by desertion – whether it be by the conscripted, enlisted, or officers alike – and further adding into the fact that the 125 that perished in Union prisons were out of over 500 that were being held, that total percentage of loss in regimental strength rises to nearly 50%.

By the end of the war during the surrender of Robert E. Lee’s Army of North Virginia at Appomattox Courthouse in April of 1865 very few of the 50th Virginia Regiment was there.  As a matter of fact the total of officers and soldiers in the entire regiment present and able for duty only numbered around 100 men – hardly enough men for one full strength company.  It is noted, however, members of Company D were certainly included in that number.
