Charnick T Brown
Pvt. Company E,
34th Alabama Infantry Volunteers
Age 29 years
Enlisted 1 May 1862
Loachapoka, Macon County, Alabama
Departed 24 May 1862
Montgomery County, Alabama


The formal organization of the 34th took place in Loachapoka, Alabama on April 15, 1862. The Brown brothers (C T, N F, H F and J Brown) enlistment actually occurred on May 1, 1862 and was for three years.

Initially, Company E was composed of 180 men--six officers and 13 non-commissioned officers, with the balance made up of privates. In subsequent organizational changes, the 34th Alabama was combined with the 24th and 28th Alabama and two South Carolina regiments into General Manigault's brigade. Manigault's Brigade fought throughout the war in many skirmishes and major battles, most notably Murfreesboro and the "Hundred Days Battle" in the spring and summer of 1864 from Dalton to Atlanta.

The 34th suffered its greatest losses at the battle of Nashville in mid-December 1864. Among its six officers, two were captured at Nashville, and of its 13 non-commissioned officers, one was killed.

Of the the original 180. Eight were killed, but the toll from disease was far greater--47 men died of disease over the three years in which the 34th was in active combat. The usual cause was typhoid fever but more common diseases to us today, such as measles and chronic diarrhea, also took their toll.

Listings from the 34th Alabama Infantry Regiment,
Company E-Tallapoosa Co, of which there were 6 officers,
13 non commissioned officers, ranging in age from 17 to 35.
