55th Infantry Regiment completed its organization at Camp Randolph, Georgia, in July, 1862. Many of the men were raised in Hall, Walker, and Jackson counties. Sent to East Tennessee, more than 540 officers and men were captured on September 10, 1863, at Cumberland Gap. After being exchanged, it was placed on detached duty guarding prisoners at Camp Sumter, Georgia and later at Florence, South Carolina and Salisbury, North Carolina. During January, 1865, there were 90 men at Florence, but the records do not give the number at Salisbury. Colonels C.B. Harkie and A.W. Persons, and Major D.S. Printup were its commanders.
