This Day in Georgia Civil War History

June 14, 1861

Enlistments in Georgia, and One in Tennessee

There were numerous enlistments in 10th Regiment from Richmond County on this day.

Likewise for the 12th Regiment from Lowndes County.

And a Tennessee native also enlisted as a private on this day, but he would quickly show a knack for warfare, earn promotions, and play an important role in the first major Civil War battle fought in Georgia - his name was Nathan Bedford Forrest.
