The 34th Alabama Infantry was organized at Loachapoka on 15 April 1862. It was sent to Tupelo, MS, and was placed with the 24th and 28th Alabama regiments, and two South Carolina regiments, in General Arthur M. Manigault's Brigade, General Jones M. Wither's Division. It was with the main Army of Tennessee when it fought at Murfreesboro, and it sustained heavy casualties (11 killed and 77 wounded). At Chickamauga, the 34th again lost heavily, and at Missionary Ridge, a large number were captured. It continued throughout the war with the Army of Tennessee, participating in the Atlanta Campaign and the Carolinas Campaign. Just before the surrender, it was consolidated with the 28th and 34th Alabama regiments, with J. C. Carter of Montgomery as Colonel, Starke H. Oliver of Mobile as Lt. Col., and P. G. Wood of Dallas as Major. At the time of the surrender, near High Point, North Carolina, it was in Sharp's Brigade, D. H. Hill's Division, Stephen D. Lee's Corps, and numbered about 125 men.
