The Elk River Rifles


Free counters provided by Honesty.com.

The 8th-16th and 28th Tennessee is based in Middle Tennessee.  We call our "consolidated" unit the Elk River Rifles.  We are members of the Cotton States Battalion.  We have members all over Middle Tennessee.  We even have members in Kentucky and North Carolina. Our company strives to promote our past through school programs, living history events, marker placements, and grave rededications. 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.

The Tennessee Infantry Regiments we strive to Honor were among the hardest fighting units ever to bear arms for the Confederacy.

Their men fell in battles with the chilling names of Mill Springs, Shiloh, 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.
