Alabama Civil War Regimental Histories

 


Over sixty infantry regiments, more than a dozen cavalry regiments, and several assorted battalions, companies, batteries and other units, were raised in Alabama during the Civil War. Many of these units, regretfully, have never had a spokesman or a historian, and records are now becoming difficult to find. The capsule histories below have been taken primarily from: [1] Willis Brewer / Alabama : Her History, Resources, War Record, and Public Men, From 1540 to 1872 (Spartanburg, SC : The Reprint Co., 1975); [2] Confederate Military History : Alabama, Extended Edition (Wilmington, NC : Broadfoot Publishing Co., 1987); [3] Joseph H. Crute / Units of the Confederate States Army (Midlothian, VA : Derwent Books, 1987); and/or [4] Stewart Sifakis / Compendium of the Confederate Armies : Alabama (New York : Facts on File, 1992). If there is any additional [printed] material available, not listed in the regimental bibliographies, please contact me at the address below.
