Description

The 35th Alabama Infantry Regiment was organized at Lagrange, 12 March 1862, with about 750 men. Ordered to Corinth, it was there brigaded under General John C. Breckinridge. It then went to Louisiana and took part in the attack on Baton Rouge, losing 4 killed and 21 wounded. It was part of the force with which General Earl Van Dorn assaulted Corinth; casualties were heavy. Placed under General James Buford, the regiment was under fire at the first bombardment of Port Hudson. It passed some time in that vicinity, and in May 1863, the regiment was engaged at Baker's Creek with light loss. The 35th participated in the Atlanta Campaign where it lost 65 killed and wounded on 22 July at Atlanta, and 27 killed and wounded on the 28th. The regiment moved into Tennessee with General John Bell Hood and was in the advance in the attack on the outpost at Decatur, where it lost 35 killed and wounded. At the Battle of Franklin, the 35th lost 150 killed and wounded, one half of its effective force. The loss at Nashville was light, and the remnant of the regiment proceeded eastward to renew their struggle in the Carolinas. The 35th, 55 officers and men, was surrendered with the Army of Tennessee. Companies Of The AL 35th Infantry Regiment Co. A - Lawrence - Richard O. Picket; captured at Corinth; resigned.
