      TheForty-fourth regiment was organized at Selma in May 1862.
      The1st of July found it in Richmond, brigaded with one
      Mississippi and two North Carolina regiments under Gen. A. R.
      Wright.In 1862 the Fourth Alabama was added, and in January,
      1864,upon reorganization, the North Carolina commands were
      replacedby the Fifteenth, Forty-seventh and Forty-eighth
      Alabama, under General Law, whoremained in command until
      January,1865, when Colonel Perry was made the brigade
      commander.
      Campdiseases played havoc with the regiment, and with greatly
      thinnedranks it went into its first battle at Second Bull Run,
      August 30, 1862, and lost two of itscaptains, T. C. Daniel and
      WilliamT. King. It took part at Harper's Ferry,September 15th
      Sharpsburg, September 17th, where itsuffered severely, losing
      nearlytwo-thirds of its effective force; Fredericksburg,
      December13th, and Suffolk, December 28th; and, transferred to
      Law'sbrigade, it wintered on the Rappahannock.
      Inthe Suffolk, Va., campaign, companies A and B were captured
      atHill's Point, April 18, 1864. At the battle of Gettysburg

      Itwas sent with Longstreet's corps to the army of the West in
      timeto take a prominent part in the battle of Chickamauga,
      September19th and 20th where again its loss was heavy. It
      foughtat Lookout creek, October 28th, and at Knoxville,
      November17th; again at Dandridge, January 16 and 17 1864.
      Theregiment was sent back to Virginia in time for the battle
      ofthe Wilderness, May 5th and 6th; and was at Spottsylvania,
      May7th to 12th, where its casualties were great; also at
      Hanover Junction, Second Cold Harbor, June 1st to 12th; and
      Bermuda Hundreds, June 2d to 10th.
      Itwas in the trenches around Petersburg until the final scene
      atAppomattox.
      Capts.T. C. Daniel and William T. King were killed at Second
      Bull Run; Capts. D. A. Bozeman and John H. Neilson, at

      Gettysburg after battle report:
      Reportof Col. William F. Perry, Forty-fourth Alabama Infantry.
      NearFredericksburg, Va.,
      August 8, 1863.
      Sir:I have the honor to submit the following report of the part
      takenby the regiment under my command in the battle of Gettysburg,
      Pa., on July 2:
      Itoccupied the place of the second battalion in the line formed by
      thebrigade on the heights, which ran parallel with and fronting
      theenemy's position. Having advanced with the brigade down the
      longslope and through the intervening meadow, it was detached from
      itsplace in the line, by order of Gen. Law, and by a flank movement
      wasbrought to the extreme left of the brigade.
      Whenat a short distance from the stone fence near the base of the
      mountain,Gen. Law informed me that he expected my regiment
      totake a battery which had been playing on our line from the moment
      theadvance began. This battery was situated, not on the
      mountainitself, but on a rugged cliff which formed the abrupt termination
      ofa ridge that proceeded from the mountain, and ran in a
      directionsomewhat parallel with it, leaving a valley destitute of
      treesand filled with immense boulders between them. This valley,
      notmore than 300 paces in breadth, and the cliff on which their artillery
      wasstationed, were occupied by two regiments of the enemy's
      infantry.
      Thedirection of the regiment after crossing the stone fence was
      suchthat a march to the front would have carried it to the right of
      theenemy's position. It was, therefore, wheeled to the left, so as to
      confrontthat position, its left opposite the battery, and its right
      extendingtoward the base of the mountain. This movement was
      executedunder fire, and within 200 yards of the enemy. The forward
      movementwas immediately ordered, and was responded to with an
      alacrityand courage seldom, if ever, excelled on the battle-field. As
      themen emerged from the forest into the valley before mentioned,
      theyreceived a deadly volley at short range, which in a few seconds
      killedor disabled one-fourth their number. Halting without an
      orderfrom me, and availing themselves of the shelter which the
      rocksafforded, they returned the fire. Such was their extreme
      exhaustion--havingmarched without interruption 24 miles to reach
      thebattle-field, and advanced at a double-quick step fully a mile to
      engagethe enemy--that I hesitated for an instant to order them immediately
      forward.Perceiving very soon, however, that the enemy
      weregiving way, I rushed forward, shouting to them to advance.
      Itwas with the greatest difficulty that I could make myself heard
      orunderstood above the din of battle. The order was, however,
      extendedalong the line, and was promptly obeyed. The men sprang
      forwardover the rocks, swept the position, and took possession of
      theheights, capturing 40 or 50 prisoners around the battery and
      amongthe cliffs.
      Meanwhilethe enemy had put a battery in position on a terrace of
      themountain to our right, which opened upon us an enfilading fire of
      grapeand spherical case shot. A sharp fire of small-arms was also
      openedfrom the same direction. This was not destructive, however,
      owingto the protection afforded by the rocks. Soon the enemy appeared
      movingdown upon our front in heavy force. At this critical
      moment,Gen. Benning's brigade of Georgians advanced gallantly
      intoaction. His extreme right, lapping upon my left, swarmed over
      thecliffs and mingled with my men. It was now past 5 p. m. The
      conflictcontinued to rage with great fury until dark. Again and
      againthe enemy in great force attempted to dislodge us from the position
      andretake the battery, in each case with signal failure and
      heavyloss.
      Lieut.-Col.[John A.] Jones, Maj. [George W.] Cary,
      andLieut. [W. P.] Becker, acting adjutant, behaved with great
      coolnessand courage. I abstain from mentioning by name others
      whodeserve special commendation, because the list would be so long
      asto confer little distinction on any single individual, and because
      injusticemight be done to others, whose good conduct escaped my
      observation.
      Theregiment lost: Killed, 24; wounded, 66; missing, 4.
      Ihave the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
      WILLIAMF. PERRY,
      Col., Comdg.
