    • 32nd Regiment, Tennessee Infantry

      Overview:
      32nd Infantry Regiment was organized at Camp Trousdale, Sumner County, Tennessee, in October, 1861, and during November reported 850 men present. Men of this unit were raised in Lincoln, Marshall, Giles, Lawrence, Williamson, and Franklin counties. It moved to Fort Donelson where it had 3 killed, 36 wounded, and 528 captured in February, 1862. After being exchanged, it was assigned to J.C. Brown's, Brown's and Reynolds' Consolidated, and Palmer's Brigade, Army of Tennessee.

      The 32nd took an active part in the difficult campaigns of the army from Chickamauga to Atlanta, returned to Tennessee with Hood, and was active in North Carolina. During the Battle of Murfreesboro it was on detached duty at Wartrace guarding railroad bridges. The regiment lost forty-six percent of the 361 engaged at Chickamauga, totalled 321 men and 242 arms in December, 1863, and mustered only 12 effectives on December 21, 1864. It was included in the surrender on April 26, 1865. The field officers were Colonels Edmund C. Cook and John P. McGuire, Lieutenant Colonels W.P. Moore and William P. O'Neal, and Majors William W.J. Broawnlow and Caloway G. Tucker. [4]
