Summary
A regimental history of Captain Smith P. Bankhead's and Captain William L. Scott's Confederate battery in the American Civil War. The book gives a breakdown of all of the members of the unit, originally recruited by Bankhead in Memphis in 1861. This case study examines the reasons the men had joined the unit and their background. Although slavery is often a reason for the war, most of the men fought for other reasons as few of them owned any slaves. After the Battle of Shiloh, Bankhead was promoted and Scott assumed command. The history of the battery explains the part the men played in the battles and campaigns in the Western theater. When the battery was overrun at Missionary Ridge many of the men continued to fight in other units while others went home. Every man that served in Bankhead/Scott's Battery is described with information about recruitment, occupation, wounded or killed in battle or died of illness or deserted
