More CSA Units


57th Infantry Regiment [also called 54th Regiment] was organized during the spring of 1862. Many of its members were recruited in Troup, Peach, Montgomery, and Oconee counties. This unit served in East Tennessee and Kentucky, then moved to Mississippi where it was assigned to T.H. Taylor's Brigade in the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana. It fought at Champion's Hill and was captured in July, 1863, at Vicksburg. Exchanged and placed in General Mercer's and J.A. Smith's Brigade, the 57th was active in many conflicts from Resaca to Bentonville. During the Atlanta Campaign, from July 20 to September 1, it reported 54 casualties and in December, 1864, totaled 120 effectives. Only a remnant surrendered on April 26, 1865. Colonel William Barkuloo, Lieutenant Colonel Cincinnatus S. Guyton, and Major John W. Shinholser were in command. ----Joseph H.
