"There was no better regiment in the Confederate Army than the Fifteenth Alabama, and when properly commanded, if it failed to carry any point against which it was thrown no other single regiment need try it."    
                                          -- Col. William Calvin Oates

"The 15th Alabama went further (at Gettysburg) than any other troop ... Co. E went as far as any part of the Regiment and stayed as long. The men fired their guns until the barrel became so hot they could not hold and load them."
                                          -- Capt. William Archibald Edwards

The purpose of this site is to memorialize the officers and men of Co E, 15th Alabama Infantry Regiment, CSA.
