Compiled Service Records of Confederate Soldiers Who Served in Organizations from the State of Alabama
THE FORTY-EIGHTH ALABAMA INFANTRY
The Forty-eighth Alabama was organized in May, 1862, at Auburn,
and went into the war with overflowing ranks.
Sent to Virginia, it was first brigaded under General
Taliaferro, in Stonewall Jackson's division, with the Forty-
seventh, from which it was never separated. The three Virginia
regiments which were in the brigade were afterward exchanged
for the Fourth, Fifteenth and Forty-fourth Alabama, in January,
1863--the brigade commanded by General Law--and the
organization remained intact until the closing scene.
The first battle of the regiment was at Cedar Run, August 9,
1862, where it lost heavily. The story of the Forty-eighth is
that of the Forty-seventh.
Scarcely had the din of the fearful fight at Gettysburg passed
away, when it was sent with Longstreet's corps to General
Bragg, to take part in the terrible conflict at Chickamauga,
September 20th; was at Lookout Valley and Knoxville, wintering
in Tennessee. Still with Longstreet, the regiment returned to
the scene of its earliest encounters and fought unremittingly
at the Wilderness, May 5 and 6, 1864; Spottsylvania, May 7th to
It fought at Hanover Junction, Second Cold Harbor, Bermuda
Hundred, Petersburg, Fussell's Mill, Fort Harrison, Darbytown
road, Williamsburg road, and Farmville, and surrendered at
Appomattox, in Perry's brigade, with the other Alabama
regiments with whom it had served so long.
Adjt. H. S. Figures was killed at the Wilderness; Capt. Reuben
Ellis was wounded, and Capt. D. R. King killed, at Cedar Run;
Capts. J. N. DeArman, killed at Petersburg, T. J. Eubanks at
Lookout Valley, Isham B. Small at White Plains, R. C. Golightly
at Sharpsburg, and Moses Lee at Second Bull Run. Capt. Samuel
A. Cox died in the service.
Field officers: Cols. James L. Sheffield, wounded at Cedar Run,
and William C. Oates, severely wounded at Fussell's Mill, who
became distinguished as a statesman in the United States
Congress after the war, and was later governor of Alabama;
Lieut.-Cols. A. A. Hughes, Jesse G. Aldridge and William M.
Hardwick; and Majs. Enoch Aldridge, wounded at Cedar Run, and
J. W. Wigginton.
