15th Battalion, Sharp Shooters

15th Battalion Sharpshooters was organized during the late summer of 1862 at Chattanooga, Tennessee. Its two companies were composed of men from other Mississippi units already in the field. It was involved in the Kentucky operations, then was assigned to S.A.M. Wood's and Lowrey's Brigade, Army of Tennessee. The unit sustained 33 casualties at Murfreesboro, contained 78 men in January, 1863, and had many disabled at Chickamauga. That December only 54 effectives were present, and it soon disbanded. The men joined other Mississippi units. Major A.T. Hawkins was in command.
