[Companies  A   B   C   D   E   F   G   H   I   K  ?]

 

From Bergeron, La. Confed. Units, 121-22:

"This regiment was organized at Camp Moore on November 19, 1861, with eight companies.  On December 11, two more companies joined the regiment,giving it a total of 873 men.  The regiment spent the winter in New Orleans.  In February, 1862, it went to Corinth, Mississippi.  The men fought in the Battle of Shiloh, April 6-7, and lost about one-fifth of their total strength.  During the engagement at Farminton, on May 9, the regiment remained in the trenches at Corinth to protect its brigade's camps and supplies.  The regiment became part of the Mobile, Alabama, garrison in July and spent most of its time in camp at Pollard, east of that city.  In April, 1863, the regiment received orders to report to the Army of Tennessee at Tullahoma, Tennessee.  There the men became part of the Louisiana brigade commanded by General Daniel W. Adams and later by General Randall L. Gibson.  The brigade moved to Jackson, Mississippi, in May and joined General Joseph E. Johnston's army.  From July 5 to 25, the brigade participated in the Siege of Jackson, and the regiment repulsed an enemy attack on its trenches on July 12.  Returning to the Army of Tennessee in northern Georgia, the brigade fought in the Battle of Chickamauga, September 19-20.  Company F captured two enemy cannons, and the regiment lost 153 of the 350 officers and enlisted men engaged.  The regiment repulsed several attacks during the Battle of Missionary Ridge, November 25, but had to retreat when the Federals outflanked its position.  During the winter of 1863-64, the regiment camped near Dalton, Georgia.  The men fought in the Atlanta Campaign at Mill Creek Gap, May 8-11; at Resaca, May 14-15; and at New Hope Church, May 25-28.  In the battles around Atlanta, the regiment fought at Atlanta, July 22; Ezra Church, July 28; and Jonesboro, August 31.  The regiment went with the army into Tennessee.  On November 30, the men arrived too late to participate in the fighting at Franklin.  They did see heavy fighting in the Battle of Nashville, December 15-16.  From Nashville, the army retreated to Tupelo, Mississippi.  After several months there, the brigade received orders to report to Mobile.  The men participated in the Siege of Spanish Fort, March 27-April 8, 1865.  When Mobile was evacuated, the regiment was consolidated as part of a new unit, the Pelican Regiment.  Companies A, E, and I became Company A; Companies C, F, G, and K became Company D; and Companies B, D, and H became Company E.  On May 8, the men surrendered at Gainesville, Alabama."
