The 29th Infantry regiment was formed at Pensacola, Florida, in February
1862. This unit was organized by adding two companies to the 4th
Infantry Battalion which had been assembled during the previous autumn
at Montgomery. Its members were recruited in the counties of Blount,
Shelby, Talladega, Barbour, Russell, Montgomery, Bibb, Covington and
Conecuh. It was drilled in artillery and remained between Pollard and
Pensacola for over a year until it was evacuated. In the summer of 1863
the regiment moved to Mobile where it was stationed until the Spring of
1864. At that time it joined the Army of the Tennessee with a 1,100
men. Assigned to General Cantey's and Shelley's Brigade the unit
participated in many conflicts from Reseca to Nashville, then fought at
Kinston and Bentonville. At Reseca, the Twenty-ninth was engaged and
lost about 100 killed or wounded men. At New Hope Church and Peach Tree
Creek the losses were heavy. On July 28, near Atlanta, half of the
regiment was killed or wounded in the fierce and protracted assault on
the Federal lines. The twenty-ninth then moved into Tennessee with
General Hood, and lost very heavily in casualties at Franklin, and
largely casualties and prisoners at Nashville. A remnant of the
Twenty-ninth moved into the Carolinas, and was engaged at Kinston and
Bentonville with considerable loss. Less than 90 men surrendered on
April 26, 1865 at Greensboro, NC. The field officers were Colonels John
F. Conoley and John R.F. Tattnall, Lieutenant Colonel Benjamin Morris,
and Major Henry B. Turner.
