Enlisted March 11, 1862 at Clopton, Dale County, Alabama, as Pvt, Co B,33rd Ala Infantry, aged 23.
The Thirty-third Alabama Infantry Regiment was organized at Pensacola,FL, on 23
April 1862, with men recruited from Butler, Coffee, Covington, Dale, andMontgomery
counties. It proceeded to Corinth just after the Battle of Shiloh. Placedin the brigade
commanded by Col. Hawthorn of Arkansas, the regiment remained at Tupelountil the
Kentucky Campaign began. It was part of the brigade of Gen'l Sterling A.M. Wood of
Lauderdale, Gen'l Simon Buckner's Division, and was present at thecapture of
Munfordsville. At Perryville, the Thirty-third entered that conflictabout 500 strong, and
came out with but 88 rank and file. It came out of Kentucky with thearmy, and at
Murfeesboro the loss of the regiment was comparatively large, for it wasin Gen'l
Patrick Cleburne's Division. The remainder of the winter was spent incamps near
Tullahoma, and the regiment retired behind the Tennessee River during thesummer. In
the grand forward movement on the enemy's line at Chickamauga, theThirty-third lost
149 casualties. Gen'l Mark Perrin Lowrey of Mississippi relieved Gen'lWood after the
latter was wounded and assumed command of the brigade [16th, 33rdMississippi
regiments, and J. H. Gibson's (18th AL) and Newman's (TN) battalions] the
Thirty-third was effectively engaged at Missionary Ridge without loss. Itwas part of the
wall of fire that checked the exultant federals at Ringgold Gap, where itlost but one
man. The regiment passed the winter at Dalton, and was in the incessantbattle from
there to Atlanta, fighting during the day and entrenching at night, andlosing many by the
casualties of battle, particularly at New Hope Church, and aroundAtlanta. Having
followed Gen'l John Bell Hood into Tennessee, it moved to the assault ofthe enemy's
works at Franklin, with 285 men, and lost over two-thirds of them, mostlykilled.
Transferred to North Carolina, the Thirty-third took part in theoperations there, and a
remnant was there surrendered.
