64th Infantry Regiment, organized during the summer of 1862, was anticipated to be a legion containing thirteen companies, of infantry and three of cavalry. However, the command was reduced to ten companies and designated the 64th Regiment. Its members were from the counties of Madison, Henderson, and Polk. The unit served in North Carolina and Tennessee, then in July, 1863, was attached to General Gracie's Brigade and stationed at Cumberland Gap. Here most of the regiment was captured in September, but some did escape. The records show that 288 men of the 64th were prisoners at Camp Douglas. Continuing the fight with about 100 effectives, the unit served under Generals Breckinridge, Vaughn, and Williams in East Tennessee, then became part of Colonel J.B. Palmer's Brigade at Asheville in March, 1865. Later it disbanded near the French Broad River. Its commanders were Colonel Lawrence M. Allen, Lieutenant Colonels William N. Garrett and J.A. Keith, and Major Thomas P. Jones.
