Alabama Twenty-ninth Infantry 
Company I 

Compiled by: Jim Bartlett, Helen Bartlett and Tonia Porter

For further information, corrections or comments, please contact: Tonia Porter,

The 29th Infantry regiment was formed at Pensacola, Florida, in February 1862.  This unit was
organized by adding two companies to the 4th Infantry Battalion which had been assembled
during the previous Autumn at Montgomery.   Its members were recruited  in the counties of
Blount, Shelby, Talladega, Barbour, Russell, Montgomery, Bibb, Covington and Conecuh.  It was
drilled in artillery and remained between Pollard and Pensacola for over a year until it was
evacuated.  In the summer of 1863 the regiment moved to Mobile where it was stationed until
the Spring of 1864.  At that time it joined the Army of the Tennessee with a 1,100 men.
Assigned to General Cantey's and Shelley's Brigade the unit participated in many conflicts
from Reseca to Nashville, then fought at Kinston and Bentonville. At Reseca,  the Twenty-ninth
was engaged and lost about 100 killed or wounded men.  At New Hope Church and Peach Tree Creek
the losses were heavy.  On July 28, near Atlanta, half of the regiment was killed or wounded
in the fierce and protracted assault on the Federal lines.  The twenty-ninth then moved into
Tennessee with General Hood, and lost very heavily in casualties at Franklin, and largely
casualties and prisoners at Nashville.  A remnant of the Twenty-ninth moved into the Carolinas,
and was engaged at Kinston and Bentonville with considerable loss.  Less than 90 men
surrendered on April 26, 1865 at Greensboro, NC.  The field officers were Colonels John F.
Conoley and John R.F. Tattnall, Lieutenant Colonel Benjamin Morris, and Major Henry B. Turner.
