1st TENNESSEE HEAVY ARTILLERY REGIMENT
This regiment was organized May 10, 1862, at Fort Pillow, Tennessee, with 10 companies which had previously seen service as independent batteries.
• Colonel-Andrew Jackson, Jr.
• Lieutenant Colonel-Robert Sterling
• Majors-Frederick W. Hoadley, J. D. Upton
Paul T. Dismukes, Co. "B", "McCown Guards." Formerly Captain Dismukes' Battery, Arkansas Heavy Artillery. Date and place of organization unknown. Dismukes was enrolled at Lamartine, Arkansas, December 6, 1861. This battery was part of the heavy artillery which had just arrived at Madrid Bend when Brigadier General Trudeau** arrived March 1st. It remained until the evacuation, April 7, 1862 when, along with other artillery units under Captain Andrew Jackson, Jr., it escaped across Reelfoot Lake and reached Memphis April 14, with 36 men.
• After the regiment was organized, it was embarked on the Steamer Golden Age on June 2, 1862, for Vicksburg. Here it came under the command of Brigadier General M. L. Smith. On June 18, 1862 he ordered the regiment temporarily consolidated into four companies, as follows:
• Co. "A", Captain Paul T. Dismukes. Formed principally from Dismukes' Co. "B" and part of Maleys Co. "C".
