ABOUT THE 14th ALABAMA REGIMENT
Author: M. D. Hurst, 1863, History of the Fourteenth Regiment
"In presenting this work to the public, I deem it unnecessary to attempt an explanation of the causes of the war. Suffice it to say, that the thunder concealed in the cloud which, for over fifty years, darkened our political horizon, burst forth on Fort Sumter on the 11 day of April, 1861. This victory to the rebels hastened preparations in all the seceded States to meet the Union army on the border. When the first demand was made to volunteers, (so eager was the South to show the North and to the world, that they intended to be free,) that it was a race to Montgomery, then the Confederate Capitol, to be received first. About the 1st of August, 1861 the 14th Alabama Regiment rendezvoused at Auburn, Alabama and organized."
