50th Tennessee Infantry Regiment, Company C


The 50th Tennessee Infantry Regiment was organized December 25, 1861 and was part of the garrison at Fort Donelson until the battle  and surrender of the Fort on 16 February 1862. The majority of the Confederate troops were taken as prisoners to different points in the in the north; officers to Fort Warren in Massachusetts and Johnson's Island, Illinois and most enlisted sent to  Camp Douglass, Illinois. Some prisoners were exchanged at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  

The command was reorganized  at Jackson, Missisippi on 23-24 September 1862 and engaged in campaigns in Mississippi and eastern Louisiana.   The 50th took active part in a heavy engagement at Chicasaw Bayou near Vicksburg in latter part of December 1862, and remained at Port Hudson, Louisiana from January 7 to May 2, 1863, enduring one good shelling in that period.  Gregg's Brigade to which the 50th belonged at the time, then marched to Jackson, Missisippi, them to Raymond, Mississippi where the regiment took part in an engagement for several hours, when forced by a whole corps, retired slowly to Jackson. On July 9th 1863, the 50th "entered the rifle pits" at Jackson, fought the enemy till July  16th, fell back to Morton, and then to Enterprise, Mississippi. The 50th left for the Tennessee Army, but unfortunately being on a train that impacted another engine, lost nearly 100 of their men.  They went into tbe Battle of Chickamauga with 190 men and came out with about 50. After regaining strength to 90 men they engaged on November 25, 1863 at Missionary Ridge, losing 36. It was noted: We regret to say that our much beloved Colonel Sugg died on the 25th. 

The 50th Tennessee Infantry was temporarily consolidated with Colms Tennessee Battalion, in November, 1862. The incorporation was made permanent and new organization made in February, 1864;  paroled Greensboro, North Carolina May 2, 1865  as part of the 2nd Consolidated Tennessee Infantry Regiment. *
