Given the age and wear of the document and the handwriting style changes in the ensuing century, it is possible that this nevertheless contains errors. I welcome any additional information or corrections to this transcription.

By Alan J. Pitts:  Years ago someone who had an ancestor in the 18th Alabama asked me to write a paper on the regiment. I remember learning about several things: their successful attack on the first day at Chickamauga; climbing down from Lookout Mountain in total darkness due to a lunar eclipse; the forlorn defense of Rossville Gap; the bloody failure at Resaca, their defense of the Confederate right at Nashville, and escape on the treadway at Spanish Fort. Unfortunately this was long before I had a PC or a word processor, and my copy of the paper was lost during a move some time ago.
Most of my sources should be available to you. These are the Official Records and Confederate Veteran Magazine. At the time our wonderful library director at the Southern Department here in Birmingham had just acquired bound reprints of the mazagine with a cumulative index. There are quite a few references to the 36th Alabama. However, there's a quick and easy way to learn more than most casual researchers. Regimental research such as you describe should be approached from a brigade perspective. In other words, learn as much as you can about the other regiments in your ancestor's brigade. Most people are disappointed in what they find about an ancestor's unit because so little is available. However, you can expand your scope four to five times simply by checking other regiments in your ancestor's brigade. Unlike their Federal counterparts, Confederate brigades usually remained togther during the last half of the war, so what you learn about one regiment often applies to all. The 18th Alabama fought at Shiloh, but we can't assume the 36th Alabama was involved because it hadn't been organized yet. History of the 32nd & 58th Alabama is interesting, but doesn't apply to Clayton's/Holtzclaw's Brigade until just after the Battle of Chickamauga. On the other hand, the Pelham Cadets were attached to Holtzclaw's Brigade after Spanish Fort, and the last marching orders for the brigade are filed with historical papers of the Pelham Cadets at the ADAH in Montgomery. I hope you benefit from this approach.

Are you familiar with the strange career of Capt. John B. Jordan of Co. "G", 36th Alabama? I corresponded with a descendant some time back. Capt. Jordan crossed over to the enemy near Atlanta on Aug. 12, 1864, providing several pages of information when interviewed by his captors. Confederates dropped him from the rolls as a deserter on Sept. 5, 1864. Capt. Jordan was released at Louisville, KY on Sept. 26, 1864, and eventually made his way to Canada. He boarded a ship at Halifax, Nova Scotia, and arrived in Wilmington NC aboard a blockade runner on Dec. 6, 1864. Jordan reported to his brigade near Mobile, explaining that he had been captured on the picket line and had not deserted. There are several pages of testimony in his record on this incident. During February of 1865 General Maury determind that the good of service would not include a court martial, so the matter was dropped and Jordan was reinstated. He turned himself over the Federals (again) at Mobile on Apr. 19, 1865.

Nettles, Thomas H. Near Columbus, Ohio, is the Camp Chase Confederate Cemetery were 2,260 marked graves remind us of the ultimate price these soldiers paid. Kept with the silence of the dead are the many untold stories of these brave men of the 36th Alabama that had left their families for glory, adventure, or simply to defend their homeland. Fortunately, the great-grand niece of one of these soldiers was able to share something of his life.

    Thomas Henry Nettles, a handsome young man farmer from Alabama, was 5’ 10” tall with a fair complexion, blue eyes, and light colored hair. Thomas Nettles was born on June 30, 1832, in the Chesterfield District of South Carolina. On June 13, 1857, he married his sweetheart Judah Ann in Buena Vista, Monroe County, Alabama. Just before his thirtieth birthday, he made the difficult decision to leave behind his wife, son and and enlist in Co. G of the 36th Regiment of Alabama Volunteers. Nettles mustered into Company F as a Second Sergeant on March 17, 1862. Sergeant Nettles was captured at Nashville in 1864 and taken to Camp Chase as a Prisoner of War. Sadly, mere weeks before the end of this terrible War, Thomas Nettles died on March 25, 1865. Somehow, a runner was sent to Alabama to tell his wife and family of his death in Camp Chase.

    The mortal remains of Thomas Henry Nettles lay buried in Row 34, number 21, grave number 1,569 in the Camp Chase Cemetery. Thomas Nettles did not suffer a wound before being captured nor was he ill with dysentery or small pox: he died of starvation. This can be attributed to the improper and inhumane treatment he received as the result of Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton’s directive to northern prison authorities to reduce the food, fuel, clothing and shelter of all Confederate prisoners to that which he deemed comparable to Southern prisons.

    After the War, his twenty-seven year-old widow, affectionately known as Aunt Judy, cared for their son and daughter along with three other orphaned Nettles children. Judah never remarried. Judah Ann Nettles lost her young husband, her two brothers-in-law and all five of her own brothers in the War.This Southern lady, called a “ministering angel” by her family and neighbors, always maintained a cheerful attitude. Beginning in 1913, Aunt Judy received a small Confederate pension from the State of Alabama. She was eighty-seven when she died while visiting her son in Peterman, Monroe, County, Alabama. The dedication and sacrifice of her husband and the sixty years of ministering to others in her widowhood are remembered by her family today. Judah Ann Nettles rests in the Rumbley Cemetery in Peterman, while her beloved Thomas Henry Nettles lays in Camp Chase Cemetery, far from his Southern home and those that loved him.

Richardson, John A.  Based on John Richardson's widow's application for a Confederate pension in 1896, it was believed that Richardson died on May 15, 1864, at the Battle of Resaca. However, other records obtained by a desendant indicate Richardson may have died on July 29, 1864. This informaiton indicated Richardson sustained a wound to the right groin and was in the 1st Division of the 15th Army of the Cumberland (Union) Hospital located east of Atalanta, Georgia. (Just speculation, it could be that his family heard he was shot at Resaca and did not know that he died sometime thereafter in a Union hopital.)
