Flag of the 16th Regiment of Alabama Infantry

We continue our research of the War Between the States. We will publish a series of books, and will start with another book on the men who served in the 16th Regiment of Alabama Infantry, CSA and their families. Most of this regimentconsisted of men across north Alabama. Many familiar names served in the 16th. Any photos or information would be helpful if you have an ancestor who served. Please identify yourself so that you may be credited with whatyou provide. Please forward photos and text to our email at: rememberingtheshoals@gmail.com.

Flag of the 16th Regiment of Alabama Infantry

This flag of the 16th Alabama Infantry Regiment is one of 87 housed at the Alabama Archives. It was captured by Pvt. Abraham Greenwalt of the 104th Ohio Infantry on Nov. 30, 1864 at the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee for which he was awarded the Medal of Honor by the U.S. The Color Bearer for the 16th was Drury Bowen from Franklin County.

Photos should be at least 300 dpi. Copy machine copies are the least desirable for print; but if that is all that exist we may choose to use them. Photos can be copied cheaply at Rite Aid and other places as well as placed on dvds for upload to email.

We are also working on books for: Roddy’s and Russell’s 4th Cavalry, 8th Tennessee, 1st AL & TN Independent Vidette Cavalry USA, 27th Alabama Infantry, 19th Alabama Infantry, and possibly others in the future.


So many of these names…

sound so familiar. Are any of these soldiers of the 27th Alabama Infantry in your family tree?
