Brief History[edit | edit source]

Stewart's Company, Tennessee Artillery was organized August, 1861. Some of the men were from Hardeman County. It was stationed at Columbus, Kentucky, then served at Fort Thompson near New Madrid. This position was attacked on March 13, 1862, its guns were lost, and the company disbanded. Captain John W. Stewart was in command. [1]

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.

Other Sources[edit | edit source]

National Park Service, The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System, is searchable by soldier's name and state. It contains basic facts about soldiers on both sides of the Civil War, a list of regiments, descriptions of significant battles, sources of the information, and suggestions for where to find additional information.
