2nd Infantry Regiment Volunteers [also called the Irish Regiment] was comprised of men from Memphis, Tennessee, and completed its organization at that city in May, 1861. In July totalling 541 effectives, it moved to Fort Pillow. It reported 18 killed, 64 wounded, and 33 missing at Belmont and suffered heavy casualties at Shiloh. Later the unit was consolidated into four companies and merged into Smith's 5th Confederate Infantry Regiment. Its commanders were Colonel J. Knox Walker, and Lieutenant Colonels James A. Ashford, William B. Ross, and James A. Smith.
