Iron Duke,

This came from a 5th Georgia Web site:

"The regiment's first posting (September - October 1861) was to Pensacola, Florida. While in Pensacola the regiment was introduced to army life and the school of the soldier by General Braxton Bragg. The ten companies of the regiment were all raised from towns and cities and were thus well equipped and nicely uniformed. The fact that no two companies were dressed alike earned them the title "Pound Cake Regiment".'
