This volume of the orders issued by the various members of the staff for the Regiment cover the time period of 1862-1863 with only a few of the latter orders being labeled “5th Tennessee”. This unit was labeled under different forms early in the war. These orders are not in chronological order nor numerical order so they have been written here in numerical order by the order number.

Example from this volume:
