Georgia 41st Infantry Regiment



HISTORICAL NOTES:
The Georgia 41st Infantry Regiment was organized during the fall of 1861. Many of its members were recruited in Cobb, Troup, Taylor, and Heard counties. The unit moved to North Mississippi, sustained heavy casualties in Kentucky at Perryville, then returned to Mississippi. Here it was assigned to General Barton's Brigade in the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana, fought in the battles around Vicksburg, and was captured on July 4, 1863. After being exchanged and assigned to General Stovall's Brigade, the 41st participated in the operations of the Army of Tennessee from Chattanooga to Nashville, and fought its last battle at Bentonville.
This was another of the units which had to face Sherman's hoards in their own homes, only to see their homes destroyed and their familes scattered as Sherman destroyed Georgia.
The 41st sustained 17 casualties at Chattanooga, contained 269 men and 218 arms in December, 1863, and totalled 197 effectives in November, 1864. Few surrendered on April 26, 1865.
