Co. "B", 48Th Alabama Infantry

another reference for this regiment is History of the 48Th Alabama Volunteer Infantry
Regiment, C. S. A. (Montgomery,1902) by John Taylor Dykes. which notes

Enlisted for three years at Auburn, Alabama, on 22 May 1862, with 1097 men recruited from Blount, Calhoun, Colbert, Cherokee, DeKalb, Jackson, and Marshall counties. A few weeks later it reached Virginia and
was attached to Brig. Gen'l William B. Taliaferro's Brigade, Maj. Gen'l. Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson's Division, with the 47th Alabama, and three Virginia regiments. The 48th Alabama's first combat was at
Cedar Run (9 August 1862) where they suffered severe loss (73 casualties); at the 2nd Battle of Manassas, it again suffered severely (50 casualties). The regiment was part of the investing force at
Harper's Ferry, and it was hurt badly at Sharpsburg (42 casualties). During the winter, the 48th was placed in the Alabama Brigade of Brig. Gen'l Evander McIver Law (with the 4th, 15th, 44th, and 47th Alabama
Regiments), Hood's Division, Longstreet's Corps. The regiment was under fire at Fredericksburg, and it fought with only slight losses at Suffolk.  The 48th Alabama Regiment moved into Pennsylvania
and was "fearfully punished" in the assaults on Gettysburg (they reported more than 25% casualties of the 374 engaged). Ten weeks later, as a part of Longstreet's Corps, the regiment was engaged at
Chickamauga (20 September). It was engaged at Lookout Valley and at Knoxville; and it passed the winter in East Tennessee. Rejoining the main Army of Northern Virginia at The Wilderness (5-6 May 1864), the 48th performed ably but lost heavily (11 killed, 30 wounded, 8 missing). From that time to the end, at Hanover Junction, the 2nd Battle of Cold
Harbor, Bermuda Hundred, Petersburg, Fussell's Mill, Fort Harrison, Darbytown Road, Williamsburg Road, and Farmville, the 48th was almost constantly on active duty. During the last half of 1864, they lost 9
killed, and 24 wounded. The 48th Alabama surrendered 136 officers and men at Appomattox Court House, having lost over 150 in battle, 165 in service, and 125 who were discharged or transferred.

Source: Reminiscences of Public Men in Alabama for 30 Years, by William Garrett - Published 1872
GEN. ROBERT W. HIGGINS, another defeated aspirant for Secretary of State., was also a lawyer. He started in Jackson county, and I think was a beneficiary of the United States Military Academy at West-Point, but I am not certain about graduating. He had lived in DeKalb county a few years, and in 1854 or ;55, went to Talladega, and became connected with the editorial department of the " Watchtower." In 1857, he was a member of the House from DeKalb, and in 1859 was elected to the Senate from that and Marshall counties. On the commencement of hostilities between the North and South in 1861, he entered the service, and went up to the rank of Major; but before he had reached the middle of the war, or had satisfied his patriotic desires to serve the cause which he had espoused, he sickened and died, leaving to his native State the character of a brave and gallant man. Previous to the war he was elected a Brigadier-General, He died young, and unmarried.
