22nd Regiment, Alabama Infantry

22nd Infantry Regiment completed its organization at Montgomery, Alabama, in November, 1861, then moved to Mobile. Its companies were raised in the counties of Walker, Clarke, Cherokee, Mobile, Pike, Choctaw, Montgomery, Calhoun, and Randolph. The unit suffered severe losses at Shiloh under General Gladden, then saw action in Bragg's Kentucky Campaign under General Gardner.


Andrew Jackson Eiland was just 17 years old when he laid down his life for his country. He died from wounds sustained Mound City, MS.

He was the son of Isaiah and Sarah Caffey Eiland. Andrew was my 3rd great grand uncle. Andrew had several brothers who also laid down their lives for the CSA. Isaiah N. Eiland died in July 1864 in Virginia and Alexander N. Eiland died in March of 1863.




National Archives of Confederate Soldiers is my source on his regiments. Eiland Family Bible Records are my source for his date of birth and death. Copies in my files courtesy of Susan S. Newton.
