      Regimental History
      Fourth Infantry
      TENNESSEE
      (3-YEARS)
      Fourth Infantry. -- Col., Daniel Stover; Lieut.-Cols., Michael
      L. Patterson, James W. M. Grayson, Thomas H. Reeves; Maj.,
      Gaines Lawson.
      This regiment was recruited at Louisville, in the spring of
      1863, under the direction of Col. Daniel Stover of Carter
      county, Tenn. It was composed wholly of exiles from East
      Tennessee, who were brought out of the Confederate lines by
      officers and pilots sent in for that purpose.
      On May 29 the regiment left Louisville and was mustered into
      service the following June. On Sept. 9, 1863, under the
      command of Maj. Patterson, it marched to McMinnville, Tenn.,
      where on Oct. 3, after 2 hours' hard fighting against a
      greatly superior force under Gen. Wheeler, it was captured and
      paroled.
      Maj. Patterson, with 40 men, returned to Nashville, and the
      remainder of the regiment, with few exceptions, returned to
      their homes in East Tennessee. Upon the arrival of Maj.
      Patterson in Nashville a court of inquiry was appointed to
      examine into the circumstances connected with the surrender of
      the post at McMinnville, which resulted in his complete
      exoneration from all charges. He then proceeded to Camp
      Nelson, Ky., to reorganize the regiment, where many of the
      soldiers reported immediately for duty, the paroles being
      invalid, having been given in violation of the cartel.
      On Jan. 20, 1864, the regiment was assigned to the 1st
      brigade, 3rd division, 23rd army corps. On the withdrawal of
      Gen. Schofield's army from upper East Tennessee, the regiment
      was sent to Loudon, and three companies under Maj. Reeves to
      Kingston.
      Maj. Patterson having been promoted to the lieutenant-
      colonel cy, was detached to command the brigade with
      headquarters at Loudon. The regiment remained there until
      Nov., 1864, when the troops were ordered to Knoxville.
      Patterson was then put in command of a brigade consisting of
      the 4th Tenn. and 3rd N. C. infantry for an expedition to
      Paint Rock, N. C., to cut off the retreat of the Confederates
      from Gen. Stoneman. This expedition ended about Jan. 10,
      1865.
      The regiment remained in upper East Tennessee and vicinity
      until July, when it was ordered to Nashville to be mustered
      out. Col. Stover, who organized the regiment, was early
      attacked by consumption and saw no service in the field.
      Battles Fought
      Fought on 7 Jan 1864 at Washington Co., TN.
