Its companies were recruited in the counties of Jackson, De Kalb, Cherokee, Marshall, Blount, Colbert, and Calhoun. The regiment was brigaded under Generals Taliaferro, Law, and W.F. Perry, Army of Northern Virginia. It fought with the army from Cedar Mountain to Cold Harbor except when it was detached with Longstreet at Suffolk, Chickamauga, and Knoxville.

It reported 73 casualties at Cedar Mountain, 50 at Second Manassas, and 42 at Sharpsburg. Of the 374 engaged at Gettysburg, more than twenty-five percent were disabled. In the Battle of The Wilderness it lost 11 killed, 30 wounded, and 8 missing, and during the Petersburg siege, June 13-December 31, there were 9 killed and 24 wounded. The unit surrendered with 14 officers and 122 men. Its field officers were Colonel James L. Sheffield; Lieutenant Colonels Jesse J. Alldridge, William M. Hardwick, and Abner A. Hughes; and Majors Enoch Alldridge, C.B. St. John, and John W. Wigginton.
