The collection contains the company roll of the Thirty-Sixth Alabama Infantry, Company D, Adams' Co. of the Confederate States Army, organized in 1862.

Biographical/Historical note

The Thirty-sixth was organized at Mount Vernon Arsenal, Alabama, 12 May 1862. It remained there a month, then aided in the construction of the defences at Oven and Chocta Bluffs. From August 1862 to April 1863, the regiment remained in Mobile, Alabama, then moved to Tullahoma, Tennessee. It was brigaded under Gen. Clayton of Barbour, along with the Eighteenth, Thirty-Eighth, Thirty-Second, Fifty-Eighth Alabama regiments, and Stewart's division. The Thirty-Sixth fell back with the army, and participated at Chicamauga (Georgia) with a loss of 125 killed and wounded. Losses were light at Lookout (Tennessee), but large in casualties and prisoners at Mission Ridge (Tennessee). The regiment wintered at Dalton (Georgia), and was engaged at Crow's Valley (Georgia), Rocky Face (Georgia), Resaca (Georgia), New Hope (Georgia), the Atlanta battles, and the skirmishing interludes, losing about 300 men by the casualties of battle from the time the company left Dalton. At Jonesboro (Georgia), the regiment was again warmly engaged, and lost 25 percent of its force. Accompanying General Hood to middle Tennessee, the Thirty-Sixth lost about 60 men at Nashville, and came out of there as a reorganized body. The regiment, with other regiments from Holtzclaw's brigade, was then placed on garrison duty at Spanish Fort (Alabama), and during that memorable siege lost 110 men killed, wounded, and captured. It was also part of the Confederate forces that were surrendered at Meridian, Mississippi, in April 1865. The Thirty-Sixth went into line of battle at Dalton, May 7, 1864, with 460 muskets, and, within the eleven months that followed, lost 470 men and 21 officers, chiefly killed and wounded.
