Brief History[edit | edit source]

The 33rd Regiment, Tennessee Infantry was formed in October, 1861, near Union City, Tennessee. It had 24 disabled at Missionary Ridge and totalled 124 men and 69 arms in December, 1863. It surrendered in April, 1865. [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.

  • Company A - Captains Ellison S. Howard, W.C. Fleming, Henry W. Hickman - Men from Obion County.
  • Company B - Captain Thomas Lacy - Men from Madison County, some from Hardeman County.
  • Company C - Captain Frank W. Marberry - Men from Calloway County, Kentucky.
  • Company D - Captains Wade H. frost, James R. Scott - "The Forest Rovers." Men from Obion County.
  • Company E - Captains T.R. Hutcherson (Or Hutchinson) (or Hutchison), John W. Walker - Men from Obion County.
  • Company F - Captains John Bedford, R.F. Morris, W.B. Jones, W.H. Adams - Men from Obion County.
  • Company G - Captains Warner P. Jones, James F. Carpenter, Bennett H. Smith, Eugene R. Morerod - Men from Lake County.
