The Forty-third regiment Georgia volunteers at its organization had for officers: Col. Skidmore Harris, Lieut.-Col. Hiram P. Bell, Maj. Henry C. Kellogg, and Adjt. J. S. Allen; Capts. (A) William F.

The regiment formed in April 1862 Camp McDonald, Big Shanty, Georgia and was assigned to the army of Tennessee after the battle of Shiloh. The regiment went into the Kentucky campaign in McCown's division; was sent to Mississippi, where it served with great distinction from Chickasaw Bayou to the surrender of Vicksburg, July 4, 1863. It was exchanged in time to take part in the battle of Missionary Ridge.

The 43rd was in the Atlanta and Tennessee campaigns, acquitting itself well on all occasions, and in the spring of 1865 was consolidated with the Fortieth and Forty-first Georgia, and served through the campaign of the Carolinas under General Johnston, until surrendered April 26, 1865.
