|SECOND ALABAMA (Infantry). The Second was composed of companies
which flocked to the seaboard at the first call of the State, and enlisted for a year.
They organized at Fort Morgan in April 1861, and remained in garrison there till March
1862, manning the heavy artillery. Ordered to Tennessee, the term of service expired at
Fort Pillow, and it was disbanded. Two or three companies almost intact joined other
organizations ; but the mass distributed themselves among new regiments, and infused a
leaven of discipline into their ranks.
