The 24th Alabama Infantry Regiment was organized at Mobile in August 1861. It remained at Fort Morgan until April 1862. It then moved to Corinth and was brigaded under General John K. Jackson of Georgia. Placed in the brigade of General Arthur M. Manigault of South Carolina, with the 28th and 34th Alabama and two South Carolina regiments, the 24th took part at Murfreesboro where it lost 118 killed and wounded. It moved back with the army to the line of Chattanooga. In the grand forward movement at Chickamauga, the regiment lost 200 killed and wounded. It was engaged at Missionary Ridge with about 25 casualties. After wintering at Dalton, the regiment fought all the way down from Crow Valley to Jonesboro, losing about 300 men, principally in the casualties of battle. With the army, the 24th moved into Tennessee and was engaged at Columbia, Franklin, and Nashville, but without severe loss in either. It ended the war participating in the Carolinas Campaign.
