Alabama 1st Mobile Infantry Regiment


 


HISTORICAL NOTES:

    The First Mobile Infantry Regiment [also known as Mobile Guards, City Battalion, and Local Defense Corps] was organized for work in the defense of Mobile from about 23 August 1863. The regiment served in that city until it was disbanded by special order from the War Department, 25 January 1865. The unit participated in the fighting at Forts Gaines and Morgan, then was ordered to disband in January 1865. However, it seems that parts of the regiment fought on at Spanish Fort and Fort Blakeley and did not disband until Mobile was evacuated on 12 April 1865.
