COMPANY A, 10TH TENNESEE INFANTRY REGIMENT, U.S.A.

Contributed by David N. Lee

Company A was one of only three companies that had been mustered into service when Alvan C. Gillem was appointed colonel of the 10th Tennessee Infantry May 13, 1862. It was first reported in the Official Records on June 10, 1862, in Brigadier General Ebenezer Dumont's Independent Brigade, District of the Ohio. On October 8, 1862, the 10th Tennessee Infantry was reported as part of the Post Forces of Nashville. Although it was assigned to various army corps during the war, including service as a Governor's Guard, the 10th mainly served garrison duty at Nashville as well as guarding nearby railroads and the construction of the Nashville and Northwestern Railroad. In April, 1865, it was ordered to Knoxville to form part of the 4th Division. It was mustered out at Greenville, Tennessee June 23, 1865.

The following roster of Company A was transcribed from the Report Of The Adjutant General Of The State Of Tennessee Of The Military Forces Of The State From 1861 to 1865, published in Nashville, Tennessee 1866. The abbreviated words are presented as they are written in the referenced publication. The only revision from the published material is that the surname is always given first, whereas in the publication, the surname may sometimes be given last. This roster is presented in the same order as the publication, which is not alphabetical, start to finish. The basic order is, officers by rank, privates, discharges during service, transferees, deaths, and desertions.
