    The 8th Alabama was assembled and formed at Richmond Virginia and bears the high honour of being the first Confederate Regiment to be mustered into service on the 10th of June 1861 as well as being the first Confederate Regiment to enlist for the full duration of the war. Company G drew its men from the county of Mobile, Alabama and became known due to its largely German composition as the “German Fusiliers”. The 8th Alabama participated in numerous battles throughout the duration of the War between the states and gained fame and renown for their prowess in battle. Its battle honours include:
    -The Battle of Seven Pines
    -The Battle of Williamsburg
    -The Battle of 2nd Manassas
    -The Battle of Sharpsburg/Antietam
    -The Battle of Fredericksburg
    -The Battle of Chancellorsville
    -The Battle of Gettysburg
    -The Siege of Petersburg
    -The Battle of Appomattox Court House

    Of its initial muster strength of 1377 enlisted men and officers only 16 officers and 153 men could answer the roll call at the official surrender of Lee´s Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House on April 9th 1865.
