    • Stories of the 42nd Alabama Infantry

      Robert Howell wrote to say that Jonathan Harrelson of Co. E was his ggggrandfather. In addition, Jonathan's son, Enos Harrelson, was also enlisted in the same company. Enos, Robert's gggrandfather, was born March 28, 1826 and died July 19, 1863. He was seriously wounded in the Battle of Vicksburg and lingered for about a month and then died.

      The Alabama 42nd Infantry Regiment

      The Alabama 42nd Infantry Regiment was organized and mustered into the Confederate service at Columbus, Mississippi on May 16, 1862. It surrendered at Vicksburg, Mississippi on July 4, 1863 and was paroled there later in the month. This regiment was composed mainly of men who re-organized in two or three instances as entire companies, after serving a year as the Second Alabama Infantry.
