    37 Th Va Company I. The Second State Line was organized before December 1862 and was comprised of ten companies of infantry and cavalry. Noah B. Sutherland, a member of Counts' company, reported in his recollections that both Peters and Harrison attempted to raise regiments for the State Line. Neither was successful in completing regiments, so Floyd combined their commands. Since Peters had collected more men than Harrison, he took command of the regiment. Harrison was commissioned lieutenant colonel. Most of the men respected Peters, but Harrison was not held in high regard. Martin Van Buren Ball had previously served as a sergeant in Company I, 37th Virginia Infantry and was discharged from that regiment upon being commissioned a captain on April 22, 1862. He later commanded Company D in the 22nd Virginia Cavalry and was cashiered for desertion in early 1864. He may have taken his men from the Virginia State Line. In January 1863 the regiment was stationed at Saltville. At that time the cavalry portion of the regiment totalled 489 men and the infantry companies had 250 men. Some of the men of the 2nd Virginia State Line served in the 21st Virginia Cavalry. Officers of the 2nd Virginia State Line were: William Elisha Peters, Colonel James Harrison, Lieutenant Colonel Martin Van Buren Ball, Major J. T. Spencer, Surgeon H. M. Boyle, AQM, Captain D. J. Gillespie, Adjutant.
    Subelements of the 2nd Regiment were: Company A - Captain Simeon "Sim" Hunt's Company. Most men of this company were from Russell County and had formerly served in Company I, 37th Virginia Infantry. Hunt was elderly when he enlisted in the Confederate Army, having been born about 1800. He served in the 37th Virginia Infantry until he resigned on August 4, 1862. Hunt apparently took command of this company after this date and may not have been its original commander. It is possible that this is the company raised by Mike Powers or Martin Van Buren Ball. Officers for this company were: Captain Martin Van Buren Ball, Captain Simeon Hunt, 1st Lieutenant William Kendrick, and 2nd Lieutenant Joseph Boyd.
