The Alabama Twenty-second Infantry Regiment was organized at Montgomery in November 1861, and was encamped at Mobile during the winter. The regiment was ordered to west Tennessee, and brigaded under Gen. Gladden of Louisiana. The regiment was engaged at Shiloh with very heavy loss. The 22nd suffered again greatly at Chickamauga where it lost its battle flag in hand to hand fighting. At Atlanta, July 22nd and 28th the loss of the regiment was quite severe, and large at Jonesboro. It moved into Tennessee with Gen. Hood, and suffered severely at Franklin, and lightly at Nashville. Transferred beyond the Edisto, the Twenty-second moved into North Carolina, skirmishing with the advance of Thomas' army. The loss at Kinston and Bentonville was light, Colonel Toulmin leading the brigade. Consolidated with the Twenty-fifth, Thirty-ninth, and Twenty-sixth-Fiftieth, at Smithville, with H.T. Toulmin as colonel, N.B. Rouse of Butler as lieutenant colonel, and Robert Donald of Limestone as major, the regiment laid down its arms at Greenesboro, N.C., April 1865.
