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

 

From Bergeron, La. Confed. Units, 124-25:

"This regiment was organized at Columbus, Kentucky, on February 9, 1862, by the addition of four companies to the 5th Louisiana Battalion.  The new regiment had a strength of 784 men.  On February 23, a portion of the regiment marched to Island No. 10 and began erecting batteries for heavy artillery pieces.  The rest of the regiment soon reported at Island No. 10 and continued the work already started.  The regiment left for Fort Pillow on March 17 and served in the garrison there until the fort was evacuated in May.  From Fort Pillow, the men went to Corinth, Mississippi.  They fought in a skirmish near there on May 28.  The regiment went with the army to Tupelo.  On July 28, General Braxton Bragg ordered  the regiment disbanded and the men assigned to other Louisiana units in the army.  Illness had reduced the effective strength of the regiment while it was at Corinth."
