1st Alabama Infantry Regiment
The 1st Alabama Infantry regiment was the first to be organized under
an act of the State legislature authorizing the enlistment of troops for
12 months. The companies rendezvoused at Pensacola in February and March
1861, and about the 1st of April organized and elected regimental
officers. The men were recruited from Barbour, Lowndes, Macon, Pike, Talladega, Tallapoosa, and Wilcox counties. Transferred to the army
of the Confederate States soon after, it remained on duty at
Pensacola for a year, occupied chiefly in manning the batteries and
taking part in bombardments on 23 Nov 61 and 1 Jan 1862. A detachment was
in the night fight on Santa Rosa Island. As the oldest regiment in
Confederate service, it was the first called on to reenlist for the war,
at the end of the first year, and seven of the companies did so. Ordered
to Tennessee, the regiment, 1000 strong, reached Island No. 10 on 12 March
1862, and it joined Gen'l Johnston at Alatoona. In Gen. James
Cantey's Brigade, it fought at New Hope Church and was afterwards
transferred to Gen. William Quarles' Brigade in which it served until
war's end. It participated at Kennesaw Mountain, lost considerably
at Peach Tree Creek. In the assault against enemy lines at
Atlanta, 28 July, the regiment won fresh renown but lost half its
strength. They moved with Gen'l John Bell Hood into Tennessee and lost
heavily at Franklin and Nashville. Transferred to North
Carolina, they fought at Averysboro and Bentonville, and
about 100 men surrendered at Goldsboro. Upwards of 3000 names were
on the rolls at different times during the war, including those companies
that did not re-enlist.
Field officers: Cols. Henry D. Clayton (until reorganization);
Isaiah G. W. Steedman (captured at Island No. 10 and Port Hudson); Lt.
Cols. I. G. W. Steedman (promoted); Michael B. Locke (wounded, captured at
Port Hudson); Majors Jere N. Williams (until reorganization), Samuel L.
Knox (captured at Island No. 10 and Port Hudson, but escaped from the
latter; wounded at Atlanta; KIA at Franklin while commanding regiment);
and Adjutants S. H. Dent (resigned), Samuel D. Steedman (captured at
Island No. 10 and Port Hudson). [Compiled by Ken
