41st Regiment, Alabama Infantry

41st Infantry Regiment completed its organization at Tuscaloosa, Alabama, in May, 1862. Members of this unit were raised in the counties of Pickens, Blount, Tuscaloosa, Perry, Greene, Washington, and Fayette. After serving in the Department of East Tennessee, the regiment was attached to Hanson's, Helm's, and J.H. Lewis' Brigade. It fought at Murfreesboro, was active in the operations around Vicksburg and Jackson, and participated in the Battle of Chickamauga. Transferred to General Gracie's Brigade, it saw action in the Knoxville Campaign, then during the spring of 1864 moved to Virginia. Here the unit was involved in the engagement at Drewry's Bluff, the Petersburg siege north of the James River, and the Appomattox Campaign. The 41st was organized with 1,250 men, reported 198 casualties at Murfreesboro, and lost forty-nine percent of the 325 at Chickamauga. Many were disabled at Sayler's Creek, and it surrendered with 14 officers and 84 men. Its commanders were Colonels Martin L. Stansel and Henry Talbird; Lieutenant Colonels Porter King, James T. Murfee, and Theodore G. Trimmier; and Maojrs Lemuel T. Hudgings, John M. Jeffries, and Jesse G. Nash.
