    The seven company 1st Infantry battalion was organized during the spring of 1862 with men drawn from the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee. The unit was originally assigned to the 3rd Military District at Port Hudson, LA the Department of Mississippi & East Louisiana. The unit's first engagement was at Corinth where they incurred a small loss. Assigned to Tilghman's brigade, Loring's division, it fought at Bakers Creek, with few casualties. It fought at Grand Gulf as part of Gen. J.S. Bowen's Defense Force where part of the battalion was captured at Vicksburg.

In June of 1863 the Battalion was assigned to Gen Johnston's Army of Relief, Dept. of the West. Then in March of 1864 it was ordered to Virginia and attached to J.R.
