"This regiment was formed at Shelbyville, Tennessee, on November 30, 1862, with an aggregate strength of 1,078 men [from the 16th and 25th regiments Infantry]. The regiment participated in the attacks on December 31, 1862, and January 2, 1863, during the Battle of Murfreesboro and suffered 438 casualties.  With its brigade, the regiment joined General Joseph E. Johnston's army at Jackson, Mississippi, in May, 1863.  At Jackson, the men played a part in the siege of July 5 to 25 and suffered a small number of casualties.  The brigade returned to the Army of Tennessee in time to fight in the Battle of Chickamauga, September 19-20.  There the regiment lost nearly one-third of its men as prisoners to the enemy.  The men fought in the Battle of Missionary Ridge, November 25, and spent the winter at Dalton, Georgia.  During the Atlanta Campaign, the regiment fought at Mill Creek Gap, May 7; Resaca, May14-15; and New Hope Church, May 25-28.  In those engagements, 63 men were killed, wounded, or missing.  The men participated in the battles of Atlanta, July 22; Ezra Church, July 28; and Jonesboro, August 31.  On October 30, the regiment captured the Federal garrison at Florence, Alabama.  The men fought in the Battle of Nashville, December 15-16, during the army's invasion of Tennessee.  In February, 1865, while at Mobile, Alabama, the regiment was broken up.  The remnants of the 16th Louisiana were consolidated with the 1st Louisiana Regulars and 20th Louisiana as a new unit.  The men of the 25th Louisiana were merged with those of the 4th Louisiana Battalion."
