CSA, F&S (Field & Staff), Major 1st Battalion, Florida Infantry

The first regiment organized was the 1st Florida Infantry. It was composed of two companies from Leon, two companies from Alachua and one each from Franklin, Jackson, Madison, Gadsen, Jefferson and Escambia counties. These companies, with the exception of Company K (Pensacola Guards), which was from Escambia County, rendezvoused at Chattahoochee arsenal where they went into Camp of Instruction. There, on April 5, 1861, was mustered into the military service of the Confederate States for twelve months, and was organized by the election of Captain James Patton Anderson, of Jefferson County, Colonel; William K. Beard, of Leon County, as Lieutenant Colonel, and Thadeus MacDonell, of Alachua County as Major. Upon the completion of the organization of the regiment it was ordered to Pensacola where it arrived April 12, 1861, and there joined by Company K. Like all regiments mustered in the early days of 1861, it enlisted for twelve months and served almost its entire term in Pensacola and in that vicinity
