The Fighting Fifteenth Alabama

A Civil War History and Roster

James P. Faust

At the start of the Civil War, volunteers from six counties in southeastern Alabama formed the 15th Alabama Infantry Regiment. As part of Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia—and briefly serving with Braxton Bragg’s Army of Tennessee—the 15th Alabama was one of the Confederacy’s most active regiments and fought in many of the war’s key battles.

Based on firsthand accounts, this volume chronicles the regiment’s experiences from its organization in July 1861 through its surrender at Appomattox. Detailed firsthand accounts are given of the 15th’s action at Shenandoah, Gettysburg, Chickamauga and Spotsylvania, along with intimate descriptions of camp life. Service records of each member are provided, including enlistment, hometown, battle wounds and, where applicable, cause of death.
