1st Tennessee Infantry Regiment:

In April 1861, in response to the growing secession crisis in the South, the Nashville, Tennessee militia -the Rock City Guards- was expanded from one company to three. Company B consisted of 104 men, under the command of Captain James B. Craighead. They drilled in Edgefield, across the Cumberland River from Hashville and on Nashville's square from April 15th to May 10th, 1861. On that day, the three companies that made up the Rock City Guards were joined by seven other companies and mustered into service as the 1st Tennessee Infantry Regiment. The other Militia Units that were consolidated into the regiment included the "Willianson Grays" (Company D), the "Tennessee Riflemen" (Company E), the Railroad Boys" (Company F), the Brown Guards" (Company G), the "Maury Grays" (Company H), the "Rutherford Rifles" (Company I), and the "Martin Guards" (Company K). George E. Maney, a 34-year-old lawyer from Nashville and Mexican War veteran, was elected Colonel of the new Regiment.

The 1st Tennessee was engaged in fighting on the right flank of General Braxton Bragg's army at Perryville, Kentucky. During the battle, the 1st Tennessee attacked a Federal Artillery Battery. In the process, the regiment lost its second flag. All 16 members of the regiments color guard were killed in the fierce fighting. Company B lost "20 out of 26 men assigned.". They saw action at the Battle of Chickamagua (September 19-20, 1863) and the subsequent siege of Chattanooga. At the battles of Missionary Ridge and Lookout Mountain, the 1st Formed a portion of the rearguard and the Army of Tenneesee retreated into Northern Georgia.

General Johnson surrendered what remained of the Army of Tennessee on April 26th, 1865. Only 65 men of the Original 1st Tennessee Infantry Regiment were present for the surrender. On May 1st, the regiment was paroled in Greensboro, North Carolina, and on May 3rd, they left High Point to return home. The Regiment arrived back in Nashville on May 21st, 1865.


Hello and welcome to the 1st Tennessee Infantry Regiment page! We were founded on June 28th, 2015 as Colonel Jackson and some of his friends who are now ranking officers in the 1st, brought up the gesture of making a North and South regiment. We've gone through some regiment changes, we were previously the 58th Alabama "Saint Clair Sharps".

If you have thought about it, and would like to join the 51st Tennessee Infantry, Just go to one of the links below, and send one of us an invite! We are eager to hear from new recruits, and we will accept anyone who is willing to join our ranks.

There are a few rules, however. And that's mainly just don't be disrespectful to your commanding officers, or your fellow teammates. Don't talk crap to other people in different regiments, and We do NOT tolerate Racism at ALL.[/font]

History of the 58th:

The Ninth Alabama (eight companies) battalion was organized at Newbern, in Greene, November 1861, and proceeded to Corinth the spring following. It was engaged at Shiloh, Farmington, and a number of skirmishes near Corinth, all with light loss; but at Blackland the battalion lost about 20 men killed and wounded, besides a large number by disease at Corinth and Tupelo. In the summer of 1862 the battalion was sent to Mobile and remained there till April 1863. At that time it proceeded to Tullahoma, and was placed in Clayton's brigade. The battalion was in several small engagements, especially at Hoover's Gap. In July 1863 at Tallahoma, two additional companies were attached, and the Fifty-eighth regiment was thus formed. Placed in Bate's brigade, a few weeks later the regiment was in the great battle of Chicamauga. On the first day it captured four pieces of artillery, and on the second was in a desperate charge which broke the enemy's line; but its loss in killed and wounded was 148 out of 254 men. A few weeks later, the regiment was consolidated with the Thirty-second Alabama, the field officers of the Fifty-eighth being retained, and placed in Clayton's brigade. The consolidated regiment had 400 present at Missionary Ridge, and lost 250 in casualties and prisoners. The regiment wintered at Dalton. At Resaca, within a few minutes, it lost 95 killed and wounded out of 300 engaged. It was engaged in numerous skirmishes during the retreat, and fought at the battles of New Hope and Kennesa, losing a number in each. The Thirty-second-Fifty-eighth was also in the bloody battles around Atlanta and a long list of casualties told the story of its conduct. Moving with Hood into Tennessee, the regiment was warmly engaged at Columbia, Franklin, and Nashville, and again at Franklin on the retreat. Ordered to Spanish Fort, the regiment was in garrison there during the siege, losing considerably in casualties. It surrendered at Meridian, under Col. Jones.
