14th Infantry Regiment completed its organization during the early summer of 1862. Some of its members were recruited at Marshall, Gilmer, and Livingston, and in Smith and Upshur counties. The 14th was assigned to Randal's and Maclay's Brigade, Trans-Mississippi Department, and was active in Louisiana and Arkansas including the fight at Jenkins' Ferry. Later it moved to Shreveport, Louisiana, then Hempstead, Texas, where it disbanded before the surrender in June. Its commanders were Colonel Edward Clark, Lieutenant Colonel William Byrd, and Major Augustus H. Rogers. This coincides with what his widow stated on her pension application.
