History of the 35th Alabama:

The 35th organized at LaGrange, in Franklin, April 1862, Ordered to Corinth, it was there brigaded under General Breckenridge. It followed that officer to Louisiana and took part in the attavk on Baton Rouge, losing wuite a number. It was part of the force with which Van Dorn assaulted Corinth, and the Thirty-Fifth was a sever loser in the casualties of that fierce struggle. Placed under Ge. Buford, the regiment was under fire at the first bombardment of Port Hudson. It passed some time in that vicinity, and in May 1863 the regiment was engaged at Baker's Creek with light loss. Escaping the perils of Vicksburg by following Gen. Loring out of the battle, the Thirty-Fifth was soon after sent to the Army of Tennessee; bu it February 1864 went back to Mississippi to confront Sherman's advance. The regiment was now in the brigade of Ge. T.B. Scott of Louisisana, consisting of the Twenty-seventh, Forty-Ninth, Fifty-fifth, and Fifty-seventh Alabama, and Twelth Louisiana. Rejoining the Army of Tennessee, the Thirty-Fifth was part of the resolute column that stood in front of Sherman's army during the great struggle in north Georgia, and in the bloody and fruitless sacrifices made before the gates of Atlanta. During that time, it lost greatly, 65 being killed of wounded July 22 at Atlanta, and 27 on the 28th following. the regiment moved into Tennessee with Gen. Hood, and was in the advance in the attack on the outpost at Decatur, where it lost 35 killed and wounded, or one-half its effectivwe force. The lost at Nashville was light, and the remnant of the regiment proceeded eastward to renew the then hopeless struggle in the Carolinas. The Thirty-Fifth was surrendered with the Army of Tennessee.
