The 11th Alabama Infantry Regiment was enlisted 17 June 1861 at Lynchburg, VA, with 972 men, rank and file, though several of the companies had been in camp for 2 or 3 months. Proceeding to VA, it reached Winchester in July and was brigaded under General Edmund Kirby Smith of FL. It fought throughout the war in Virginia with severe loss, and was sternly confronting the foe at Appomattox when astounded by the news of the surrender. There were only about 125 of the regiment present there for duty, Capt. M. L. Stewart of Pickens commanding. Of 1192 names on its muster roll, over 270 fell in battle, about 200 died of disease, 170 were discharged, and 80 were transferred.
