The Butler Guards were organized on Feb. 24, 1855, by two Citadel graduates, H. Lee Thruston and A.D. Hoke, who named the company for former South Carolina Gov. Pierce Butler.
In 1861, the guards joined the Second South Carolina Volunteers to fight with the Army of Northern Virginia and engaged in their first battle at Manassas on July 21, 1861. During the next four years, they fought at Malvern Hill, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Gettysburg, among others. When they finally surrendered near Durham in April 1865, three-quarters of those who had joined were either dead or severely wounded.
