Although most originated from the small farming communities located north of Memphis, the men who enlisted in Company C of the 9th Tennessee Infantry were of diverse backgrounds and occupations. As their letters, memoirs, and obituaries indicate, however, these 126 soldiers forged bonds that proved unbreakable even during the heat of battle. James R. Fleming describes this band of brothers and, in doing so, reveals how their experiences while fighting at places like Columbus, Perryville, and Atlanta transformed them from a group of rural Tennesseans into the only company to earn the moniker the Southern Confederates.
