The Tenth Tennessee Infantry Volunteers was one of only two Irish Catholic regiments in the CSA Army. They were known as the "Bloody Tenth" because of the extraordinarily intense fighting and heavy casualties they endured throughout the Civil war.
History of the Tenth Tennessee Sons of Erin Flag
The 10th Tennessee was organized at Fort Henry in May, 1861 just a few weeks after Confederate forces fired on Fort Sumpter. They adopted the flag that had originally belonged to Company D of the Tennessee State Militia. It had a Kelly green background with light green ribbons trimmed in maroon that read "Sons of Erin" and "Go Where Glory Waits You" in gold lettering. The original flag is now housed in the Tennessee State Museum. In July of 1861 the 10th Tennessee was reported as having 720 men. They fought at Fort Donelson in February of 1862 where they suffered heavy losses, which is where they first earned the nickname "Bloody Tenth". Most of the men who were not killed were captured and sent to a Union prison camp. In September of 1862, they were released via prisoner exchange and reunited in October. After being reconstituted, the 10th Tennessee was deployed as sharpshooters at the battles of Chickamauga, Chattanooga and Atlanta where they suffered more heavy losses. At the end of the war, there were less than 100 men left out of the original 720, all of whom had been wounded several times.
