Forgotten Soldiers: History of the 4th Regiment Tennessee Volunteer Infantry (USA), 1863-1865


Many people may be unaware of any support for the Union in Tennessee during the 1860's and may be surprised to learn of the important role played by soldiers from East Tennessee. Based almost entirely on primary sources, this history relates the events in the record of the 4th Regiment. By examining the service records of 1,040 soldiers, Nikazy is able to give particular attention to personal detail and chronicle the lives of men from Greene, Grainger, Carter, Johnson, Cocke, and Washington counties. There is biographical data on both the officers and soldiers that include enrollment, rank, promotions, age, wounds, discharge and other pertinent information.
