The 8th Tennessee Volunteer Infantry "The Camargo Guards"

The 8th Tennessee is based in Middle Tennessee. We are members of the Cotton States Battalion. We have members all over Middle Tennessee. We even have members in Kentucky. Our company strives to promote our past through our reenacting at National Battlefields, and battle reenactments. We attempt to give an accurate portrayal of the Confederate Army of Tennessee soldier and if required Untied States soldier on campaign. Our Federal impression is that of the 22nd Illinois Infantry
The Tennessee Infantry Regiment we strive to Honor was among the hardest fighting units ever to bear arms for the Confederacy.

Their men fell in battles with the chilling names of Perryville, Murfreesboro, Chickamauga, the Atlanta Campaign, Franklin, and Nashville.

These men were volunteers . . . farmers, merchants, schoolboys, blacksmiths, clerks, and bankers...but they stood toe to toe with the best the Union could muster-some of them elite U.S. Regular units-and drove them from the field.

The guns are silent now, and the blood these men shed has long since seeped into the soil they trod. They are gone now, but they are not forgotten.
