Alabama 48th Infantry Regiment


 


HISTORICAL NOTES:

    The Alabama 48th Infantry Regiment was formed at Auburn, Alabama, in May, 1862, and in June moved to Virginia with 1,100 men. Its companies were recruited in the counties of Jackson, De Kalb, Cherokee, Marshall, Blount, Colbert, and Calhoun. The regiment was brigaded under Generals Taliaferro, Law, and W.F. Perry, Army of Northern Virginia. It fought with the army from Cedar Mountain to Cold Harbor except when it was detached with Longstreet at Suffolk, Chickamauga, and Knoxville. The 48th was involved in the battles, skirmishes, and hardships of the trenches of Petersburg north of the James River and ended the war at Appomattox. It reported 73 casualties at Cedar Mountain, 50 at Second Manassas, and 42 at Sharpsburg. Of the 374 engaged at Gettysburg, more than twenty-five percent were disabled. In the Battle of The Wilderness it lost 11 killed, 30 wounded, and 8 missing, and during the Petersburg siege, June 13-December 31, there were 9 killed and 24 wounded. The unit surrendered with 14 officers and 122 men.

    The 4th Alabama along with the 15th, 44th, 47th and 48th made up Law's brigade. A site on line is dedicated to this brigade.
