First Alabama Regiment of Infantry and Artillery
Forty-third Alabama Regiment
At Resaca, Ga., we captured four pieces of the prettiest brass cannon I ever saw. Here is where three comrades and myself of the First Alabama came in handy. We had been trained in heavy artillery service and we knew how to use the guns. I was in the battle of New Hope Church. I could have walked on dead men for a mile."Reminiscences of the Boys in Gray."
