HISTORY OF THE 42D REG T GA,BYTHE\V. L.CALHOUN,VOLS,, INF Y, C, S, A,HISTORIAN.people of the South believed that the United States Government was acompact between Sovereign States, embodied in the fundamental law known as the Constitution, and that it was the duty of the States, as well as the people, to sacredlyobserve and keep its requirements. For years they realized the unwelcome fact thatthe North, either through a spirit of envy and hatred, or of aggrandizement, hadviolated its terms and was seeking to oppress the South and destroy its institutionsFor this, and for thedirectly in conflict with the provisions of the Constitution.preservation of the Constitution, they took up arms, not as traitors, not to destroy,but to preserve the Government a principle which is not dead, but must live if theAmerican GovernmentisSeeing no hope for the South in the Unionmaintained.they resolved to"Nailto themast her holyflag,Set every thread-bare sail,And give her to the God of Storms,Thelightning and thegale."The splendid victory at Manassas hadyear.but, not having been followed up, its effect was lost, and, early in 1862,apparent that the whole strength of the South must be put forth. CallsThe war had progressed about onebeenitwonbecame;made, and the men who constituted the 42d regiment Georgia VolunWith the exception of one company that commanded by CaptainW. L.

The regiment was organized on the 4th of March, 1862,at Camp McDonald, by the election of Robert J. Henderson, Colonel; R. F. Maddox,Lieut. Col.; William H. Hulsey, MajorHugh M. Wylie, Adjutant B. W.

Thomas was promoted to Lieut. Colonel. Adjutant Hugh M. Wylie, the bravest of the brave, was killed at Nashville, Tenn., andwas succeeded by J. S. Stubbs and W. M. Durham. E. B. Rosser, Serg t Major,was transferred and succeeded by Jas. H. Griffin. Moses Richardson was also Ass tSurgeon, and W. F. Edwards, the last Color Bearer. It was one of the largest regiments in the service, and was always kept well recruited. While in the camp ofthe men.organization there was a great deal of sickness, and many deaths amongVery soon, however, it was ordered to Cumberland Gap, where its active service beganand continued until the Confederate Flag went down in defeat, but not in dishonor.

The regiment wasandlastlyHendersonsfirst in Raine s Brigade, afterwards Barton s, then Stovall s,of Stevenson s division Hood s and Stewart s corps.It fought22 battlesTazewell, Cumberland Gap, Chickasaw Bayou, Baker s Creek, Vicksburg,Missionary Ridge, Rocky Face, Resaca, New Hope, Pumpkin Vine, Kennesavv, Atlanta, July 20, 1864; Atlanta, July 22, 1864; Atlanta, July 28, 1864; Jonesboro,Franklin, Nashville, Edisto River, Binaker s Bridge, Oraugeburg, Winston, and Beutonville.The most conspicuous service rendered in the engagements was at Baker sCreek, where, with unflinching courage, it brought up the rear of our retreatingarmy across the Big Black at Vicksburg, where, in the trendies, for forty-sevendays and nights half starved and poorly armed it resisted the assaults of the enemy;;Resaca, where, by a fierce assault on theenemy s works, it lost about 130 killed andChurch, where Capt. Summers so distinguished himself incommand of the skirmishers Atlanta (July 22d). where in a brilliant charge itcaptured DeGress battery; Franklin, where the regiment again protected the retreatof the army, at which timeCapt. Weaver and others were killed.wounded;New Hope;It is impossible to enumerate themany times and places, when and where, the42d exhibited heroic conduct, or themany instances of the noble conduct of individuals.It is sufficient tosay that it was noted for its discipline and steadiness, and onno occasion during the entire war was it ever thrown into disorder. Much of thisowing to the efficiency of its commanders Gen. Henderson and Col. Thomas, andother brave officers and more to thepatriotism and bravery of the men. S. K.
