Men of this unit were from the counties of Coosa, Wilcox, Macon, Butler, Talladega, Montgomery, Randolph, Elmore, and Tallapoosa. Ordered to Virginia, it served under General Rains at Yorktown, and in April, 1862, contained 474 effectives. Later the 13th was assigned to General Colquitt's, Archer's, Sanders', and W.H. Forney's Brigade, Army of the Northern Virginia. It participated in many conflicts from Williamsburg to Cold Harbor, then fought in the long Petersburg siege south of the James River and the campaign that ended at Appomattox. This regiment reported 52 casualties at Seven Pines, 101 during the Seven Days' Battles, and 140 at Chancellorsville. Of the 308 engaged at Gettysburg, over half were disabled. It surrendered with 6 officers and 85 men on April 9, 1865. The field officers were Colonels James Aiken and B.D. Fry; Lieutenant Colonels William H. Betts, R.H. Dawson, S.B. Marks, and Julius C.B.
