Historical Sketch  free pdf The 41st Alabama Infantry Regiment was organized on 16 May 1862. After proceeding to Chattanooga, it operated in middle Tennessee for some months and then joined the Army of Tennessee soon after its return from the Kentucky campaign. It was initiated into the harsh realities of war at Murfreesboro. During that episode, it lost its brigadier general and suffered 198 casualties. The regiment then remained at Tullahoma until ordered to Mississippi with the other portions of Breckinridge's Division. It was engaged in the operations for the relief of Vicksburg and was in the trenches at Jackson. Between December 31, 1862 and September 19, 1863, the regiment lost 375 men. It went into the Battle of Chickamauga with only 325 remaining. The 41st was in the forward movement at Chickamauga and in the struggle over the enemy's fortified position. Again, the brigadier general was lost as were 189 casualties of the 325 present from the regiment. As part of Longstreet's corps, the 41st participated in the struggles and privations of the winter campaign in East Tennessee, sustaining heavy losses at Knoxville. The regiment reached Virginia in April 1864 and was engaged in the Battle of Drewry's Bluff and Dutch Gap. It was then in the protracted siege at Petersburg north of the James River, and in the battles around that city. The regiment was engaged at Hatcher's Run and in the fighting on the Appomattox retreat under General Gordon. About 270 men were present under Col. Martin L. Stansel for the surrender.
