Brief History

7th Infantry Regiment, organized at Pensacola, Florida, in May, 1861, contained eight infantry and two mounted companies. Its members were from the counties of Calhoun, Madison, Chambers, Cherokee, Butler, Pike, Barbour, Jackson, Wilcox, Lauderdale, Dallas, Montgomery, and Autauga. Ordered to Corinth, the regiment disbanded prior to the Battle of Shiloh, as the time of service of most of the companies expired in April, 1862. The two mounted companies from Autauga and Lauderdale retained their organization and fought in the battle, then became part of the 53rd Alabama Cavalry.[1]

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.
