9th Infantry Regiment was organized at Pine Bluff, Arkansas, in July 1861, and was known as the "Parson's Regiment" because it contained forty-two ministers. Its companies were recruited in Jefferson, Union, Drew, Bradley, and Ashley counties. The 9th fought at Belmont, moved east of the Mississippi River, then took an active part in the conflicts at Shiloh, Corinth, and Coffeeville. It served under Generals Rust, Buford, and Beall in the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana, and saw action at Champion's Hill, Jackson, and Port Hudson where it was captured on July 9, 1863. After being exchanged and assigned to General D. H. Reynold's Brigade, the unit participated in the campaigns of the Army of Tennessee from Kennesaw Mountain to Bentonville. It reported 17 killed and 115 wounded at Shiloh and 16 casualties at Coffeeville. Many were disabled at Nashville and Bentonville, and on April 26, 1865, the regiment surrendered.
