Brief History

"This company was being mustered into service at Nashville, Tennessee, on February 5, 1862, but was ordered away before the muster was completed.  It was probably assigned to the 54th Tennessee Infantry Regiment, as it was accepted by the same Confederate states mustering officer, at the same time and place as other companies known to have been assigned to the 54th Infantry Regiment.  It was perhaps Company "D", or Company "f", of that regiment which are not identified.  The 54th Regiment was merged into the 48th (Nixon's) Tennessee Infantry Regiment in April, 1862, and no subsequent service of Tackitt's Company has been identified."  [1]

"Units of the Confederate States Army" by Joseph H. Crute, Jr. contains no history for this unit.[2]
