Unit Details:
12th Infantry Regiment was organized during the summer of 1861 by E. W. Gantt. Many of the men were recruited in Dallas County. It served in the Western Department, and later at Beall's Brigade, Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana. The 12th had the unfortunate distinction of being captured in three engagements: Fort Donelson, Island No. 10, and Port Hudson. After being exchanged at Fort Donelson, the men were almost immediately exchanged and the regiment was reogranized. But after the fight at Island No. 10, many of its members refused to return to the comamnd and its ranks were filled with about 500 new recruits. Following the capitulation of Port Hudson, the men were exchanged, but the officers were sent to Johnson's Island. No attempt was made to reorganize the regiment. The field officers were Colonels Edward W. Gantt and T. J. Reid, Jr., Lieutenant Colonels W.D.S. Cook and E.C. Jordan, and Major J. S. Walker.
