The 46th Tennessee Volunteer Infantry Regiment is a group of men, women and children who are dedicated to the preservation of "true" history and the memory of our ancestors, North and South, who fought and died for what they believed in. It is our mission to make sure that southern history and the heritiage of the Confederate soldier is preserved and carried on for this and future generations. There are too many groups today that want to wipe out every symbol, memory and "true" history of Southern people. It is our responsibility, as living historians, to accurately portray the average soldier of 1861-65 in our living history camps and battle re-enactments of the War for Southern Independence, sometimes referred to as the War Between the States. We hope that our impression will help educate people in the ways of our ancestors, not just in how they fought, but why they fought.
Although the 46th Tennessee, Company K is dedicated to the authentic portrayal of the brave and honorable Southeron Soldier, we do galvanize to portray the gallant boys in blue of the 2nd Tenn. Vol. Inf., USA when necessary for historical accuracy in a re-enactment. Because of our committment to historical accuracy, "true" history and honoring our ancestors, the same attentions to detail drives our Federal impression of the soldiers who fought to preserve the Union.
The 46th Tennessee, Company K, is the infantry branch of this unit. In addition, we have a a three gun artillery battery, Baxter's Battery, and a Medical Corps.
The 46th Tennessee actively particpates in hosting school programs, memorials, parades, living histories and re-enactments.
