Notes: John Tipton Womack

"The 2nd Infantry Regiment (also called Magnolia Regiment) was organized at Fort Morgan, AL during April 1861. Its members were raised in Calhoun, Pickens, Franklin, Monroe, Clarke, Mobile, and Jackson Counties. The regiment formed the garrison at Fort Morgan, serving as infantry and artillery, until March 1862, when it was ordered to Fort Pillow in Tennessee. Here it disbanded because its term of service had expired. The officers and men joined other Alabama commands. Colonel Henry Maury, Lt. Col. H. C. Bradford, and Maj. Daniel P. Forney were its field officers." The muster roll posted here is listed in the official records as Co. B, Lane Guards, of the 2nd Regiment, Alabama Volunteers, in the service of the Confederate States for 12 months unless sooner discharged." The following roll was written 17 September 1861 at Fort Morgan, Alabama."
