ABOUT THE 17TH TENNESSEE INFANTRY REGIMENT





The 17th Tennessee Infantry was mustered into Confederate service on August 15, 1861 at Big Creek, Campbell County, TN. The regiment was then placed under the command of Brigadier General Felix K. ZOLLICOFFER, and participated in an engagement at Rock Castle, Kentucky (Camp Wildcat) on October 21, 1861, where it suffered 45 causalities. On January 20, 1862 the regiment was engaged in action at Fishing Creek near Mill Springs, Kentucky. In this battle the regiment suffered 46 casualties and Brigadier General ZOLLICOFFER was killed. The next action the regiment saw was during General Bragg's invasion of Kentucky in 1862. During this campaign the regiment was present at the capture of Munfordville and at the battle of Perryville (Oct. 8, 1862 - 24 casualties).

The regiment was placed in General Patrick R. CLEBURNE'S Division during the battle at Murfreesboro (Dec. 31, 1862), where the regiment listed 246 causalities out of 598 men engaged. Following the Tullahoma campaign, the regiment was heavily engaged at the Battle of Chickamauga (Sept. 19 & 20, 1863) and suffered 130 causalities out of 249 men engaged.

The regiment then severed its connection with the Army of Tennessee and served under Lt. General James LONGSTREET during campaigns against Knoxville and East Tennessee in the Fall and Winter of 1863/64. The regiment was then transferred to the Army of Northern Virginia in the Spring of 1864. In Virginia, the regiment was involved in many battles, including Drewry's Bluff (May 15, 1864 - 68 casualties out of 319 engaged), Petersburg (June 17, 1864 - 70 men captured), and Hatcher's Run (Feb. 2, 1865). The regiment was surrendered by LEE at Appomattox Courthouse with approximately 70 men remaining from the over 1000 men who served.

Company I of the the 17th Tennessee Infantry was formed by men from Franklin County, Tennessee and Jackson, County, Alabama.  The informaion contained below was obtained from the National Arhcives microfilm M268, rolls 186 through 190.
