9th Alabama Infantry CSA

Name: Elam Carr HamiltonRank: Unknown Company:
from his obituary: At the first call to arms in 1861, Elam Hamilton, a youth of nineteen, responded and enslisted for the war in the company of Capt. Thomas H. Hobbs, then known as the Limestone Troopers, but which became Co. F of the 9th Alabama Vol. Regiment which under Col. Cadmus M. Wilcox bore high its colors for four years.

This regiment at Salem Church on May 4th, 1863, retook from a Federal Corps the position lost an hour before and for this was complimented in general orders by the Confederate Congress. In Pickett's famous charge at Gettysburg he received a desperate wound. Later in 1864 at Petersburg, the regiment recaptured the line after the explosion of forty thousand pounds of powder had blown away a hundred yards of entrenchments. This has since been known as the battle of the Crater. In both these desperate combats Mr. Hamilton did his duty manfully.

When the end came at Appomatox he returned to his home without any possessions except his courage and that confidence which comes from the consciousness of a duty well done.

Name: William Alexander CoxRank: Corporal Company:
My maternal great-grandfather was William Alexander Leonidas
Cox, a TN native who enlisted in the 9th Alabama Infantry Regiment just after it was formed. Family records document facts that indicate he was with this unit and wounded by a rifle shot in his foot during Pickett's charge at the Battle of Gettysburg. After the Civil War, he lived in Murfreesboro, TN, and became a school teacher. One child -- Jessie Cox, my maternal grandfather -- became a successful artist who later painted beautiful murals in private and governmnet buildings in Memphis, TN.

I'd welcome hearing from anyone who can provide information
to add to our family history.

Name: William Eppa FieldingRank: Other Company: F
This is my great grandfather. Enlisted 1861/06/04 Residence: Athens, Alabama. Was single and school teacher. Company Muster Roll for September and October, 1864, last on file, shows him present, ''Sergeant Major of the regiment.'' His name appears on a Register of Payments on Descriptive Lists, which shows he was paid January 13, 1865 for service from August 31, 1864 to December 31, 1864. In his personal diary, he wrote of the battle of the Crater, July 30, 1864, where ''Grant tried to blow us up by mining under a South Carolna battery....they put 8000 pounds of powder under us and blew out a hole about 30 feet deep and 60 feed across between daybreak and sunrise. They sent over ten or fifteen thousand men and got possession of several hundred yards of the works on each side of the hole or ''Crater'' as it is called, but got no farther. Our division commanded by Gen. Malone was on the right of our line and was sent around to retake it. The Va. brigade and the Georgia brigade were sent in successively and retook part of our works as far as their front extended, after a fierce hand to hand fight, but did not get possesion of the ''Crater.'' Finally our brigade, the 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th and 14th Alabama regiments was sent for and I remember we took a ciruitous route nearly back to town and formed in a small ''swag'' or ravine two or three hundred yards in rear of our works, and about 1 oclock charged across the field under a hot fire and retook the works at the bayonet''s point. Here I saw dead men lie thicker than I ever saw them before or since, mostly negroes. What was left of the enemy in the Crater hoised a white cloth on a stick over the edge and surrendered and came jumping over the wall like sheep and nearly ran over me as I stood right in their path. I was then Sergeant Major of the 9th Alabama. I was, I think, the second or third man to go into the hole which was lined on the inside with dead men.''

'This is the story of Stephen S. Renfroe. The following information is but a brief summary of the crooked and infamous life of this man, as taken from various sources. No copyrights have been infringed upon in retrieving this information. The historical information and dates were taken from the book STEPHEN S. RENFROE, ALABAMA'S OUTLAW SHERIFF, by William Warren Rogers & Ruth Pruitt. This is intended to represent strictly the life and times of an incredibly complicated individual, presented here in the form of a rough time-line of events. Stephen S. Renfroe, or Steve Renfroe, was born in Georgia in 1843, the son of JG and MAP Renfroe. JG Renfroe and his family had come from Georgia to Butler County, AL, about 1852 or 1853. On June 6, 1861, at the age of 18, Stephen, a good-looking gentleman of a man, enlisted for duty in the Civil War, serving in Captain EY Hill's Jeff Davis Rangers, which later became Company G of the 9th Alabama Infantry Regiment. He served as a private until January 30, 1864, when he deserted.'

The Ninth Alabama Infantry Regiment

The Ninth Alabama infantry, organized at Richmond in May, 1861, enjoyed the distinction of having a joint resolution of thanks given it by the Confederate Congress in February, 1864. It was engaged in the siege of Yorktown, April 5 and May 2, 1862; at Williamsburg, May 5th, and at Seven Pines, May 31st and June 1st. This regiment won imperishable renown at Gaines' Mill and Frayser's Farm, was under fire at Second Manassas, and assisted at the capture of Harper's Ferry, September 12 to 15, 1862. It was also engaged at Chancellorsville and Salem, May 1-3, 1863, and suffered very heavy loss at Gettysburg. It was in the battle of the Wilderness, May 5-7, 1864, Cold Harbor, June 1st to 12th, and fought in the trenches at Petersburg for nearly 9 months. Among its field officers were Cadmus M. Wilcox, afterward a very distinguished major-general; E. A. O'Neal, afterward brigadier-general, and since that time governor of Alabama; Col. Samuel Henry, Col. J. Horace King, Lieut.-Col. Gaines C. Smith, Majs. H. J. Williams and J. M. Crowe. Among the officers killed were Capts. Thomas H. Hobbs and E. Y. Hill, at Gaines' Mill; Captain Gillis, at Williamsburg; W. C. Murphy at Salem; J. W. Wilson and John Y. Rayburn, at Sharpsburg.

Extracts From Official War Records

Vol. II--(480) Wilcox's brigade, army of the Potomac (Special orders, July 20, 1861).
Vol V--(1029) Same assignment, Potomac district, General Beauregard commanding, January 14, 1862, at this time at Centreville, Va.
Vol. XI, Part 1--(569) Casualties, 10 killed, 45 wounded, near Williamsburg, May 5, 1862. (570, 571) Gen. J. E. B. Stuart reports: 'Captain Farley, who was in the entire fight, speaks in the highest terms of the heroic courage and fighting tact of the Ninth Alabama.' (577, 578) Mentioned in report of Gen. A. P. Hill: Colonel Williams, with one or two companies of the Ninth Alabama, captured a battery of 8 guns. (590-593) General Wilcox's report says: 'Among those that call for special notice are Capts. Warren Smith, Gillis and King. The companies of the first two were the first to enter the captured battery. Captain Gillis, greatly distinguished for courage, displayed an example of coolness set to his men. He was mortally wounded. Captain Murphy of the Ninth, conspicuous for pertinacity and courage, was painfully wounded in the arm.
