Here is the story of the Confederate Ninth Tennessee Infantry, known as the "Southern Confederates," one of the most well-educated, zealously religious, and unbelievably gallant groups of men to engage in the American Civil War. Using the soldiers' actual letters, memoirs, war records, and obituaries, James R. Fleming documents this immortal "band of brothers," which included five of his own ancestors, as they endure the privations of life on the western front. This valuable historical and genealogical resource also includes discussions of the battles at Columbus, Perryville, and Atlanta, as well as the regiment's Order of Battle and each soldier's service record.
