50th Consolidated Regiment, Tennessee Infantry (Confederate)
Brief History[edit | edit source]
The 50th Consolidated Regiment, Tennessee Infantry was formed in February, 1864, by consolidating Colms' 1st Tennessee Battalion and the 50th (Old) Tennessee Regiment. The regiment surrendered on April 26, 1865, with 37 men. 
Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin[edit | edit source]
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.
