    CONFEDERATE TENNESSEE TROOPS

    42nd Regiment, Tennessee Infantry

    42nd Infantry Regiment was formed at Camp Cheatham, Tennessee, in November, 1861, with five Tennessee and five Alabama companies. At the reorganization in 1862, the five Alabama companies were transferred to the 6th (Norwood's) Alabama Infantry Battalion which later merged into the 55th Alabama Regiment. Four Tennessee companies from the 1st Alabama, Tennessee, and Mississippi Regiment and one Florida company then joined the 42nd. The unit was captured in the fight at Fort Donelson and after the exchange became part of Maxey's Brigade in the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana. It was stationed at Port Hudson, moved to Jackson, and in September, 1863, assigned to Quarles' Brigade, Department of the Gulf. During the spring of 1864 the regiment joined the Army of Tennessee at Dalton with 169 effectives. It went on to participate in the Atlanta Campaign, Hood's Tennessee operations, and the North Carolina Campaign. Very few were included in the surrender on April 26, 1865. The field officers were Colonels Isaac N. Hulme and William A. Quarles; Lieutenant Colonels Levi McCollum, John H. Norwood, and Isaac B. Walton; and Major Josiah R. Hubbard.

    Samuel Kirkland was one of those captured at Fort Donelson and imprisoned at Camp Douglas in Chicago, Illinois. He was released at the end of the war, and according to family tradition, walked home to Tennessee.

    In 1900 Sam and Oma were living next door to their son Thomas.

      The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System, a National Park Service site < http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/ >
      is a simple database providing the name of the soldier, the state from which he served and the unit in which he served. The source of the data is the General Index Cards in the Compiled Military Service Records at the National Archives. There are links from the over 6 million names to over 4,000 unit histories which are linked to information on the 354 most significant Civil War battles. Information on sailors is not as complete; however, current information includes the names of over 18,000 African American sailors. The Web site also includes links to 14 national cemeteries managed by the National Park Service; information on over 1,200 Civil War soldiers and sailors who received the Congressional Medal of Honor; and prisoner records of Union prisoners at Andersonville and Confederate prisoners at Fort McHenry as well as the Web pages of all National Park Service Civil War sites.
