14th Infantry Regiment was formed at Camp Duncan, near Clarksville, Tennessee, in May, 1861, with eleven companies. However, Company F disbanded in May, 1863, and 32 men transferred to Company E. Its members were recruited in the counties of Montgomery, Robertson, and Stewart. Ordered to Virginia, the regiment participated in Lee's Cheat Mountain Campaign and for a time served under T.J. Jackson. Later it was attached to General S. R. Anderson's, Hatton's, Archer's, and McComb's Brigade. The 14th was prominent in many conflicts of the Army of Northern Virginia from Seven Pines to Cold Harbor, then was active in the long Petersburg siege south of the James River and the Appomattox Campaign. It sustained 84 casualties during the Seven Day's Battles, 33 at Cedar Mountain, 48 at Second Manassas, 59 at Fredericksburg, and 35 at Chancellorsville. Of the 220 engaged at Gettysburg, over fifty percent were disabled. The unit surrendered 6 officers and 34 men. Its field officers were Colonels William A. Forbes and William McComb; Lieutenant Colonels Nathan Brandon, Milton G. Gholson, G.A. Harrell, and James W. Lockert; and Majors James H. Johnson and Nathan M. Morris.
