This is a brief history of the 3rd Alabama Infantry, C.S.A., by its colonel. It concentrates on the regiment, not the man. Battle later was promoted to brigadier general and acted briefly as a division commander before his wounding at Cedar Creek in October 1864, yet his old regiment remains the focus of the book. Battle was a good man and a good soldier. He wrote this a couple of years before his death in 1905
