The Alabama 30th Infantry Regiment was organized at Talladega, 16 April 1862. It reported for duty at once to Chattanooga. Sent further into East Tennessee, it was brigaded under General Alexander W. Reynolds of Tennessee, then under General Carter L. Stevenson. The regiment skirmished at Tazewell and Cumberland Gap, and moved into Kentucky, but it was not engaged there. On the return to Tennessee, the 30th was brigaded with the 20th, 23rd, 31st, and 46th Alabama regiments, under General Edward D. Tracy of Madison, and in December, it was sent to Vicksburg with the other portions of Stevenson's Division. Following exchange after the fall of Vicksburg, the 30th continued throughout the was with the Army of Tennessee, participating in the Atlanta Campaign. At the end of the Atlanta Campaign, the 30th proceeded into Tennessee with the remainder of Hood's army and was engaged at Nashville, losing heavily. They were part of the rear guard on the movement to Duck River. Transferred to North Carolina, the regiment fought at Kinston and Bentonville, with high casualties. Toward the close of the war, the 30th was consolidated with the 20th Infantry and redesignated the 20th Consolidated Infantry Regiment, at Smithfield, 9 April 1865. In January, 1865, about 250 were fit for duty and 75 surrendered with the Army of Tennessee.
