Hi…I understand that the North Carolina 17th Regiment troops fought at both Drewry’s Bluff and Bermuda Hundred….Do you know of any books or other info about the NC 17th?….My great-grandfather, Joseph R. Beale fought for the 17th…..
Thanks for commenting. The Battle of Drewry’s Bluff was a part of the Bermuda Hundred Campaign fighting. I checked my two favorite places for information on unit bibliographies. The Library of Congress turned up nothing, but the US Army Historical Education Center provides the following list of items which cover the 17th North Carolina:
