16th Tennessee Volunteer
attempted to find illustrations of any type of the original members of the
Regiment what follows is all that I have managed to find to date. As the
end you will find the Colour Guard from Perryville from which four of them have
originated, and the group photo from which another has come.
The highest rank that the person reached has been used, and please be aware that while dominated by officers they had a height casualty rate and many of these officers started as privates.
I have had reference to other illustrations but as yet have not manage to track them down. If you have, or know, where these illustrations are, or can confirm that any from the group photo are from the Regiment please inform me.
With time there will be links to as many photos as possible. All illustrations will have a short biography, some very short.
Very few of the pictures illustrated here have a date for when they were taken so it should be noted that while some of these illustrations were taken during the war many others were taken post-war. Some of those shown died as late as 1932 so that if they look old they are and shouldn't be confused with re-enactors of the present day who are older than the very young men who were the soldiers of the time.
The last surviving member of the unit was Private Bluford Lafayette Scarlett, F Company, who died on the 20 January 1935, when he was 91.
