44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment

Organized at Camp Trousdale, Tennessee on December 16, 1861. The regiment consolidated with the 55th (McKoin's) Tennessee Infantry on April 18, 1862. Re-organized on May 5, 1862. Field Consolidation with the 25th Tennessee Infantry in October 1863.

Shortly after organization, the regiment left Camp Trousdale and moved to Camp Hardee at Bowling Green, Kentucky. Following the fall of Fort Donelson, Tennessee on February 16, 1862, the regiment fell back through Nashville to Murfreesboro, Tennessee reaching there on February 23, 1862. Then to Shiloh which they entered with 470 men. At roll call after the battle only 120 answered to their names. As a result, on April 18, 1862, the regiment was consolidated with the 55th (McKoin's) to form the 44th Consolidated Tennessee Infantry.

The army fell back to Corinth, then on to Tupelo, Mississippi on May 29th. Then on July 27th, retreated to Chattanooga, Tennessee. Then came Bragg's Invasion of Kentucky and the battle at Perryville, Kentucky on October 8, 1862. The regiment sustained 43 casualties in this battle. Then the long retreat back to Murfreesboro, Tennessee where out of 409 engaged losing 174 in killed, wounded and missing, including 19 out of 28 officers.

After going into winter quarters at Tullahoma, Tennessee in July 1863, saw another retreat to Chattanooga. Then into Chickamauga, Georgia on September 19th and 20th, 1863, where with 294 engaged, casualties were 113. Here 44 men were sent to the rear, barefooted. Then came the battle at Knoxville, followed then to Rogersville and Bean's Station, Tennessee then into Virginia, fighting at Walthall Junction, Swift Creek and Drury's Bluff in May 1864. Then into the trenches at Petersburg, Virginia on June 15, 1864. At Drury's Bluff, 95 casualties out of 250 engaged. Then had already been consolidated with the 25th Infantry. The few remaining were paroled at Appamattox Court House, Virginia, April 9, 1865.

The 55th (McKoin's) Tennessee Infantry Regiment

Organized January 30, 1862, at Camp Trousdale, Tennessee. Consolidated with the 44th Tennessee Infantry to form the 44th Consolidated Tennessee Infantry.

McKoin's regiment never did receive a number from the Adjutant and Inspector's Office at Richmond, Virginia. They seem to have it confused with Brown's 55th, but it was known in the field as the 55th Tennessee Infantry.

This regiment had practically the same regimental history as the 44th Infantry.

Both regiments suffered so severely at Shiloh that neither had the minimum number to maintain its organization.

Richmond pronounced the consolidation as illegal, but was deemed inexpedient to annul it so the consolidated served as such to the end of the war.

When the consolidated regiment left Tennessee for Virginia, about April 22, 1864, they left 104 men behind sick or as deserters.
