The 56th Georgia Infantry [NA] [Moved to NW]
« on: June 08, 2016, 08:12:35 am »

The 56th Georgia Infantry
Volunteer Infantry, CSA

History
The 56th Infantry regiment was sometimes also referred to as the 55th. It was recruited in the late spring of 1862 and organized May 15, 1862. Crute reports that some of the men were from Chattahoochee and Dooly Counties.

In the spring of 1862 the regiment was sent to east Tennessee, where it served in Stevenson's division in the recapture of Cumberland Gap and the advance into Kentucky. In the fall of that year it was sent to Mississippi, sharing with other regiments of the division in the battles and privations of the campaign which ended with the surrender of Vicksburg. After being exchanged it participated in the battle of Missionary Ridge and the Atlanta and Tennessee campaigns of 1864. Here in the battles around Atlanta these men actually fought on their own farms against Sherman's hordes, only to see their farms decimated and their families scattered as Sherman's troops pillaged Marietta and Atlanta.

In the spring of 1865 part of the 56th was consolidated with the Thirty-fourth and Thirty-ninth under the name of the latter, and part with the Thirty-sixth and Forty-second as the Forty-second Georgia. It served in the campaign of the Carolinas, which closed with the surrender near Goldsboro.

Good luck!
Vid Breitenfeld vi togo Pappenheim i vår famn;
vi skrefvo på Kronenbergs brynja vårt namn;
vi svedde grått skägg för Tilly vid Lech;
vi blödde med kungsblod vid Lützens häck.
