At its peak, the Forty-ninth Tennessee Volunteer Infantry Regiment numbered 500 men. Many were under the age of 25. The regiment’s ten companies were mustered from Tennessee’s Benton, Cheatham, Dickson, Montgomery, and Robertson Counties, with Montgomery County men making up more than half the ranks. During the war, over 75% of the regiment were incarcerated as prisoners of war at least once. More than 50% were imprisoned twice. Diseases such as measles, smallpox, dysentery, gangrene, and sepsis claimed more lives than combat. Battlefield wounds were often devastating, and medicine was primitive at best. Regardless of age or rank, none returned home unscathed…This is their story.
