Within the Legion, the 1st Infantry Battalion was organized with 7 companies at Montgomery, 25 June 1862. Four companies consolidated with the 3rd Infantry Battalion, Hilliard's Legion, and they were designated the 60th Infantry Regiment at Charleston, TN, on 25 November 1863. The remaining 3 companies became the 23rd Sharp-shooters Battalion. The field officers were Lt. Col. Jack Thorington and Major (then Lt. Col.) John H. Holt.
