The 8th-16th and 28th Tennessee is based in Middle Tennessee. We are members of the Cotton States Battalion,
and the 1st Confederate Legion. We have members in all over Middle Tennessee from Kentucky to Alabama. We even have members in North Carolina. We mainly do a Confederate
impression, but sometimes for the good of an event go as Federal Infantry.
The 8th-16th and 28thTennessee Infantry Regiments 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.
