In Response To: Re: 9th Virginia Infantry ()

I don't have a working knowledge of these Virginia Regiments other than what I have uncovered while researching other materials. Nor can I vouch for the accuracy or completeness of the information in the source I cited.

That being said, for more information I would also recommend:
A Guide to Virginia Military Organizations 1861-1865
Lee A. Wallace

I tried to find out as much as I could about your questions and the results are as follows:

McRae Rifles
The Virginia State Militia became part of the Confederate States Army and Virginia Brigadier General Benjamin Huger was put in charge of the Department of Norfolk, becoming a Confederate brigadier two weeks later.[4] On July 1, he signed an order organizing the various companies of state militia into regiments, including the 41st Virginia, which he formed with seven companies, intending to bring the total up to ten with additional recruitment, with West Point graduate John R. Chambliss in command as colonel
Company C – McRae Rifles (Petersburg, Prince George Co., Dinwiddie Co., and Chesterfield Co.), Captain James S. Gilliam

Assigned to the 41st Virginia by G O #39 dated July 12, 1861

The 41st Virginia arrived with Mahone's Division in Petersburg, the home of many of its men, sometime between June 18 and June 20, 1864. On June 21, the Union II Corps and VI Corps advanced to the Jerusalem Plank Road, with the plan to wreck the Weldon Railroad, one of the two remaining supply lines for Petersburg.
