89th Regiment Virginia Militia (Morgan)
This regiment was called out by the proclamation of the Governor dated July 13, 1861, to rendezvous at Winchester, and appears to have served until Nov. 30, 1861. Regimental returns for July to November 1861 account for nine companies of the regiment (A to K, except G), and state that Companies A to D and H reported to service, and that only a few members of Co. I reported, who joined Co. A. The other companies failed to report.
