Directions: Coming out of Tracy City On Hwy 56 to Coalmont, short way out is a store/video on left. Turn left at the store. Now heading down the mountain to Pelham. When they get to the bottom start looking for a big pasture on right, less than 2 miles if I remember correctly. There is a big tree(s) not a lot though in the middle of the pasture. If the sign is still hanging out there it will say Sanders Cem. At the end of the fence is a trailer. Turn into this driveway. As you do, you will see the cattle gate into the pasture. As long as you close the gate they say no problem going to the cem. Copyright [2004] All rights reserved©

Florida, Georgia, & Alabama : Jordan Sanders was inducted into the 1st Tennessee Mounted Volunteers as a Private, Armstrong's Brigade, June 20, 1836 in Centerville, Franklin, TN @ 21 yrs. Discharged from active duty with the 1st Tennessee Mounted Volunteers 14 Jan 1837 in New Orleans, LA. Note about the "Trail of Tears" and the dates in relation to Jordan Sanders: In one of the saddest episodes of our brief history, men, women, and children were taken from their land, herded into makeshift forts with minimal facilities and food, then forced to march a thousand miles(Some made part of the trip by boat in equally horrible conditions). Under the generally indifferent army commanders, human losses for the first groups of Cherokee removed were extremely high. John Ross made an urgent appeal to Scott, requesting that the general let his people lead the tribe west. General Scott agreed. Ross organized the Cherokee into smaller groups and let them move separately through the wilderness so they could forage for food. Although the parties under Ross left in early fall and arrived in Oklahoma during the brutal winter of 1838-39, he significantly reduced the loss of life among his people. About 4000 Cherokee died as a result of the removal. The route they traversed and the journey itself became known as "The Trail of Tears" or, as a direct translation from Cherokee, "The Trail Where They Cried" ("Nunna daul Tsuny").

Noted events in his life were:

• Military Service: Regular soldier under Capt. McDaniel, Aug 1814, Fort Erie, , ON, CAN. 89 90 91 was at siege of Fort Erie under Genl. Brown.

Authors Note on Capt. McDaniel: Possibly, McDaniel, Moses, Cor, Maj Wm Russell, Capt Wm Chism, Vol Mtd Gunmen, Res omitted.
Authors Note on Genl. Brown: Possibility for this one could be...Colonel John Brown in the East Tennessee Volunteer Mounted Gunmen, Kingston, Roane,TN.
Authors Note on General Brown: Jacob Brown was a Pennsylvania Quaker who undertook many trades before entering the army, including those of schoolmaster, surveyor, and smuggler. He moved to New York state near Lake Ontario and became an influential citizen. When offered a commission in the state militia, Brown abandoned his pacifist beliefs and accept the post. His success at organizing and training his men did not go unnoticed. Fellow officers of the state elected the tall and handsome Brown to the rank of brigadier general.
Brown earned great renown with his defense of Sacket's Harbour in May of 1813. Brown outsmarted the British advance even though his militia initially abandoned the defense effort. As a result of his courageous stand, Secretary of War John Armstrong awarded him a regular commission as brigadier general. Soon after, Brown participated in the failed American attempt to reach Montreal in the fall of 1813.
Though the U.S. Army had suffered at Chrysler's farm , for a brief time it seemed as though they could salvage the operation due to Brown's success in clearing the British from the Longue Saute rapids. Brown led the army downstream to rendez-vous with Major General Wilkinson as planned. But the indecisive Wilkinson would not advance on Montreal without support from Major General Wade Hampton. Wilkinson canceled the campaign and the army crossed back to the U.S. and spent two grueling winter months in French Mills. Brown's performance did not go unrecognized.
Brown replaced Wilkinson as commander of the Army of the North in the spring of 1814. He set his sights on the Niagara Peninsula, a territory he believed was vulnerable if both he and Commodore Chauncey could mount a combined offensive. If he met with success on the peninsula, Brown felt that he could eventually take York and Kingston. In early July, Brown led 3500 men across the Niagara River and seized Fort Erie. Two days later the American army met with an unprecedented victory when they defeated the British on an open battlefield at Chippawa . The bulk of the British army was allowed to escape, and gained reinforcements in the following weeks. Brown pursued the British to their doorstep at Fort George but waited to attack in the vain hope that Chauncey would provide support. Brown retreated to Chippawa in order to regroup, but the British came looking for him.
On July 25, the British advance was attacked by Winfield Scott's battalion and suddenly Brown had a major battle on his hands at Lundy's Lane . Brown directed the American offensive until he was seriously wounded by a musket shot and an artillery ball. He was removed from the field and command passed to Major General Eleazar Ripley until the battle ended in a bloody stalemate.
The Americans retreated to Fort Erie and were holed up there while the British conducted a seven-week siege. Brown, who was far from fully recovered, refused to give up the fort. The British finally retired and the Americans had no choice but to return to the US side since food and supplies were dangerously low. As Washington burned and the British advanced into New York, Brown's persistence and bold obstinacy along the Niagara buoyed the sinking morale of the American public.
Brown emerged from the conflict a national hero. When the US reduced its Army after the war, Brown was kept on and eventually became Commander General of the US Army in 1821. He held this position until his death in 1828 at the age of 53

• Military Service: The Niagara Campaign of 1814, Battle of Fort Erie, 3 Jul 1814, Fort Erie, , ON, CAN. 92

The Americans Take Fort Erie: Prelude to the Battle of Chippawa
Staring into the dark from the shores of the Niagara River, on July 3, 1814, British pickets can barely make out the formation of boats heading in their direction. They fire off a few rounds across the water before wheeling around to inform the commander at Fort Erie that the Americans are on their way. By morning, Major Thomas Buck has a very clear view of the massive force that has crossed to Canada; the flotilla of boats has carried dozens of horses, field guns, and 3500 soldiers under the command of Brigadier Generals Winfield Scott and Eleazar Ripley.
The American invasion force moves slowly on the British fort, perhaps because they know already it has nowhere near the number of men needed to put up a fight. In fact, Major Buck has only 137 troops in the fort. Buck's situation goes from bad to worse as another American force of 1000 militia and 500 native warriors under Peter B. Porter, marches onwards towards the fort from it's landing point to the south. The nearest British reinforcements are at Fort George with Major Phineas Riall. Buck decides to fire off a few guns, "for the honour of the flag" knowing full well that surrender is his only option. He opens the gates to the Americans at 5pm.
Scott is pleased with the progress so far. Ripley, however, believes that General Jacob Brown's plan is little more than a gamble since much of it hinges on Commodore Chauncey's gaining control of Lake Ontario. Without the Commodore's support, Ripley doubts that this force of 5000 can make a lasting impression on the peninsula. It is Scott however, who controls this operation and Ripley has little say in the matter.
Winfield Scott wastes no time. He orders Porter to remain at Fort Erie with his force while the rest march northwards. Porter has orders to rendez-vous on the morrow if the army makes progress. Scott personally leads the advance brigade. By afternoon, the Americans encounter the forward elements of Riall's army who, alerted to the American invasion, have marched from Fort George and camped north of the Chippawa River. But these few regulars could only slow, but not stop, Scott's advancing troops. The British retire across the King's Bridge to the north side of the Chippawa.
Luckily, Phineas Riall has a good defensive position. The Chippawa River slices across the peninsula and widens to nearly 75 meters where the British are dug in. Riall has strongly reinforced both ends of the only bridge across this otherwise impassable stretch of river. By late afternoon, the last of the battle-weary residents of the tiny village of Chippawa cross the bridge to once more seek protection behind the British lines. Riall has sent a dispatch to York demanding reinforcement for his 2000 troops. By evening Norton's men have moved down from the Niagara Falls and pitched camp in the forest to the right of the British.
Winfield Scott ventured close enough to the King's Bridge to assess his enemy's position. He realizes that the British position can not be taken without more preparation. Scott orders his advance troops back one mile behind Street's Creek where they are joined by the brigades under General Brown and Eleazar Ripley.
Only one mile separates the two armies. Despite the thick air of anticipation, all sides attempt to get some rest . Many believe they will need it come the morrow.

44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment History
The 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment was first organized at Camp Trousdale, Tennessee, on December 16th, 1861. After the 44th suffered heavy losses at Shiloh, the regiment was consolidated with the 55th (McKoin's) Tennessee Infantry, a regiment which had also suffered heavily at that battle, and the two regiments were then reorganized and designated as the 44th Consolidated Tennessee Infantry.
The 44th Infantry then fought in all the battles of the Army of Tennessee through Chickamauga. After that battle, the regiment was assigned to Longstreet's Corps, and participated in the Knoxville campaign. It's final duties involved long months in and around the defenses of Petersburg, Virginia. On 2 April,1865, the 44th's position in the lines was over-run, and most of the regiment was captured. The few that escaped surrendered with Lee at Appomattox.

Their line of march took them from Fayetteville (where they were mustered into service), through Fort Deposit, Fort Strother, and finally to Fort Williams.

The 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment was first organized at Camp Trousdale, Tennessee, on December 16th, 1861. After the 44th suffered heavy losses at Shiloh, the regiment was consolidated with the 55th (McKoin's) Tennessee Infantry, a regiment which had also suffered heavily at that battle, and the two regiments were then reorganized and designated as the 44th Consolidated Tennessee Infantry.

The 44th Infantry then fought in all the battles of the Army of Tennessee through Chickamauga. After that battle, the regiment was assigned to Longstreet's Corps, and participated in the Knoxville campaign. It's final duties involved long months in and around the defenses of Petersburg, Virginia. On 2 April,1865, the 44th's position in the lines was over-run, and most of the regiment was captured. The few that escaped surrendered with Lee at Appomattox.

Almost all the men named herein, where involved in actual campaigning, served in the Creek War of 1813-14 (a sub-conflict of the war of 1812) or in the New Orleans campaign which culminated in the victory of the Americans at Chalmette in Jan 1815. Ironically, most deaths of Tennesseans where the result of an apparent epidemic of some unknown malady after the war was over, in the late winter and spring of 1815. History books do not seem to mention this epidemic but a perusal of the service records clearly reveals its existence.

The date given is the earliest date seen in the packet of papers on each estate. Some packets were incomplete and in some cases only one loose page was found. Abstracted by Charles A. Sherrill.

123. Compiled by the Civil War Centennial Commission, Tennessee in the Civil War, 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment History, http://www.tennessee-scv.org/4455/index.htm . Repository: Website

 The 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment was first organized at Camp Trousdale, Tennessee, on December 16th, 1861. After the 44th suffered heavy losses at Shiloh, the regiment was consolidated with the 55th (McKoin's) Tennessee Infantry, a regiment which had also suffered heavily at that battle, and the two regiments were then reorganized and designated as the 44th Consolidated Tennessee Infantry.

The 44th Infantry then fought in all the battles of the Army of Tennessee through Chickamauga. After that battle, the regiment was assigned to Longstreet's Corps, and participated in the Knoxville campaign. It's final duties involved long months in and around the defenses of Petersburg, Virginia. On 2 April,1865, the 44th's position in the lines was over-run, and most of the regiment was captured. The few that escaped surrendered with Lee at Appomattox.

It is the purpose of the authors of these pages that they be dedicated as a memorial to the officers and men of the 44th Regiment, some of whom were our ancestors, and all of whom deserve to be recognized and remembered for their service to their home, their state, and their nation. It is also hoped that these pages will serve as a reliable reference for those persons who may be researching their own family histories, as well as those with an interest in the lives and honourable deeds of the Confederate Soldier.
The following history is taken from "Tennesseans in the Civil War" as compiled by the Civil War Centennial Commission, 1964. The 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment was organized at Camp Trousdale December 16, 1861; consolidated with 55th (McKoin's) Tennessee Infantry April 18, 1862 to form 44th Consolidated Tennessee Infantry; reorganized May 5, 1862; field consolidation with 25th Tennessee Infantry October, 1863; paroled at Appomattox Courthouse April 9, 1865.

Some of the companies bore different letters in the interval between the first consolidation and the final organization with election of regimental officers. The letters shown are those used after the final reorganization. Shortly after organization the regiment moved to Camp Hardee, Bowling Green, Kentucky, where it was placed in Brigadier General S. A. M. Wood's Brigade, along with the 7th Alabama, 5th, 7th, 8th, and a battalion from the 9th Arkansas Infantry Regiments, and the 3rd Mississippi Infantry Battalion. Following the fall of Fort Donelson February 16, 1862, the brigade fell back through Nashville to Murfreesboro, where on February 23, 1862, the brigade was reported as composed of the following units: 7th, 16th Alabama, 8th Arkansas, battalion from 9th Arkansas, 27th, 44th, 55th Tennessee Infantry Regiments, the 3rd Mississippi Battalion, two batteries, and Avery's Georgia Cavalry. The brigade was placed in Brigadier General Gideon J. Pillow's Division, but shortly Brigadier General T. C. Hindman took command of the division. As part of this division the brigade was engaged in the Battle of Shiloh April 6-7, 1862. General Wood, in his report, stated the 44th entered the battle with 250 muskets. Doctor Noblitt, Assistant Surgeon for the regiment, said in his account in Lindsley's Annals, that the 44th entered the engagement with 470 men in line, and at roll call Tuesday morning, April 9, 120 answered to their names. Colonel McDaniel and Lieutenant Colonel Shied were both wounded, and Major Johnson had been absent from the regiment for some time because of illness. As a result, on April 18, 1862, the 44th was permanently consolidated with the 55th (McKoin's) regiment which had also suffered heavy losses, to form the 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment Consolidated, or the 44th Tennessee Infantry, 2nd Organization. Field officers appointed by General Hardee were Colonel John H. Kelly, 3rd Arkansas Battalion; Lieutenant Colonel John L.McEwen, from 55th Tennessee; Major Henrv C. Ewin (or Ewen) from 55th Tennessee. After company officers were elected, they were authorized by General Bragg to choose their own field officers, and John S. Fulton, of the 44th, was elected to. replace Colonel Kelly, but McEwen was continued as lieutenant colonel and Ewin as major. Major Ewin was mortally wounded at the Battle of Murfreesboro December 31, 1862, and Captain G. M. Crawford succeeded him as Major. One company report stated Andrew Ewing was chosen major, and Doctor Noblitt listed William Ewing, but it is believed these were errors, as no Ewing was found in the muster rolls of the 44th Consolidated Regiment, and it is believed Henry C. Ewin is the correct name. On April 26 the 44th Consolidated was reported with 489 electives, in Wood's Brigade, composed of the 16th Alabama, 8th Arkansas, 33rd Mississippi, 27th, 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiments, Avery's Georgia Dragoons, and the Jefferson Light Artillery. The brigade fell back to Tupelo Mav 29; moved from Tupelo on July 27 for Chattanooga, where Brigadier General Bushrod R, Johnson took command of the brigade which was placed in Major General Simon B. Buckner's Division. It moved up through the Sequatchie Valley for General Bragg's invasion of Kentucky; was present at the surrender of Munfordville, Kentucky; and engaged at the Battle of Perryville, October 8, 1862. At this time, the brigade consisted of the 5th (9th) Confederate, 17th, 23rd, 25th, 37th, and 44th Tennessee Regiments, plus Darden's Battery. The 44th had 43 casualties in this battle. On November 22, 1862, Johnson's Brigade was reported as consisting of the 17th, 23rd, 37th and 44th Tennessee Regiments. The 17th, 23rd, and 44th continued together until the end of the war. In the Battle of Murfreesboro, December 31, 1862, Johnson's Brigade was in Major General Pat R. Cleburne's Division, and had been increased by the addition of the 25th Tennessee Regiment. The 44th reported 509 men engaged, 174 killed, wounded and missing, including 19 out of 28 officers. The regiment went into winter quarters at Tullahoma, remained there until April 22, 1863, when it moved to Wartrace; from there on May 24 to Fairfield; and at Hoover's Gap June 24-25, 1863 was in Major General A. P. Stewart's Division, Johnson's Brigade, in support of General William B. Bate's Brigade. Johnson's Brigade formed the rear guard of Major General William J. Hardee's Corps as it fell back in July from Tullahoma to Chattanooga, and the 44th was stationed around Loudon and Charleston until earlv in September. At Loudon, on July 12, 1863, General Johnson reported that 104 men from the 44th had been left in Middle Tennessee by desertion and otherwise. From Charleston the regiment moved to Chickamauga, Georgia on September 8, and was engaged in the Battle of Cbickamauga September 19-20, 1863, as part of General Johnson's Provisional Division. Here Colonel Fulton was in command of the brigade, and the 44th reported 113 casualties out of 294 engaged, including Lieutenant Colonel McEwen who was wounded. Prior to the battle 56 barefoot men had been sent to the rear. On October 31, at Cherokee Springs, still in Stewart's Division, the brigade was reported as composed of the 17th/23rd, and 25tb/44th Tennessee Regiments. Here began a field consolidation with the 25th which was to continue for the duration, although separate muster rolls were maintained. On November 22, the brigade was transferred to Buckner's Division, Lieutenant General Longstreet's Corps, for the invasion of East Tennessee. On November 30, the 63rd Tennessee was reported as a member of the brigade, and these five regiments constituted Johnson's Brigade until the consolidation of Johnson's and Archer's brigades in January 1865. The 44th was present at the assault on Fort Sanders, Knoxville, November 29, 1863; moved to Rogersville; fought at Bean's Station December 14; moved to Morristown January, 1864; to Dandridge January 15; to Lick Creek February 29; to Midway March 1; from Midway on March 28 to Greeneville, to Jonesboro, to Zollicoffer (now Bluff City), to Vance's Store; to Abingdon, Virginia; left Abingdon April 22 for Richmond; fought at Walthall Junction, Swift Creek and Drewry's Bluff in May, 1864; at Petersburg June 15; and on June 18 was in the trenches outside of Petersburg. In May, 1864 it had been transferred to Beauregard's Department of North Carolina and South Virginia, Major General Robert F. Hoke's Division, with Colonel Fulton in command of the brigade. On May 9, 1864, 125 men from the 44th, under Lieutenant Francis M. Kelso, were detailed to man the heavy artillery at Fort Clifton, and engaged in a battle with Federal gunboats which they drove off with considerable damage. On May 16, at Drewry's Bluff, Lieutenant Colonel McEwen and Major McCarver were mortally wounded, and command of the 25th/44th fell upon Captain William N. James. In this engagement, he reported 95 casualties out of 250 electives engaged. Major Crawford also later died of wounds received here. On June 16, Lieutenant Kelso and his company captured a number of prisoners and three stands of colors, but on June 22 the colors of the 44th were captured by the 48th Pennsylvania Infantry at Petersburg. On June 30, Colonel Fulton was struck by a shell, and mortally wounded. Company reports show the regiment at Signal Hill, Virginia, August 13, 1864; stationed at Chaffin's Farm September and October; near Petersburg November-December, 1864. No further details of the regiment's activities were found, but in January, 1865, Johnson's and Arcber's Brigades were consolidated under Colonel (later brigadier general) William McComb, formerly of the 14th Tennessee. The lst Confederate, 7th and 14th Tennessee Regiments, and the 2nd Marvland Battalion were the additions which formed the consolidated brigade. On February 28, 1865 Captain Jonathan E. Spencer was reported in command of the 25th/44th. The regiment, as part of this brigade, Major General Heth's Division, Lieutenant General A. P. Hill's Corps, was surrendered and paroled with Lee's Army at Appomattox Courthouse April 9, 1865.
