9781514806449: Historical Sketch & Roster of the Alabama 40th Infantry Regiment (Confederate Regimental History Series) (Volume 40)

The 40th Alabama Infantry was organized by Col. A. A. Coleman on the 13th day of March, 1862, at Speeds Mill in Pickens County, Alabama. It was mustered into Confederate service in May 1862 at Mobile. The regiment remained in Mobile until December when it was moved to Vicksburg to take part in the operations on Deer Creek. While there, it was brigaded with the 37th and 42nd Alabama, and 2nd Texas, under General J. C. Moore. The regiment had 332 effectives in January, 1863. Four companies were there transferred to General Ector's Brigade, General Braxton Bragg's Army of Tennessee and fought at Chickamauga. The other companies of the 40th were part of the garrison of Vicksburg, suffered severely, and were there captured. The regiment was reunited near Missionary Ridge and took part in that battle and at Lookout Mountain, where it suffered 135 casualties. The 40th took part in the campaign from there to Atlanta, with losses especially heavy at New Hope. During the Atlanta Campaign, May 7-31, it lost twenty percent of the 416 engaged. When the army marched back to Tennessee, in company with the other regiments of Baker's Brigade, the 40th was sent to Mobile and was on garrison duty there for some months. In January 1865, the regiment proceeded with the remainder of the army to North Carolina and shared in the operations, fighting at Bentonville with severe loss. Consolidated with the 19th and 46th, the 40th was shortly after surrendered at Durham Station, NC, 26 April 1865. Companies Of The Alabama 40th Infantry Regiment Co.
