Brief History[edit | edit source]

The 14th Regiment, Tennessee Infantry was formed at Camp Duncan, near Clarksville, Tennessee, in May, 1861. Of the 220 engaged at Gettysburg, over fifty percent were disabled. The unit surrendered 6 officers and 34 men. [1]

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin[edit | edit source]

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.
