*The "Red Infantry." Artillery units from the Cape Fear coastal garrisons that fought as infantry at Bentonville.

The Army of Tennessee units at Bentonville were severely depleted, and many were consolidated. Some regiments were stronger than others—and each unit listed above had, at the very least, a token presence on the battlefield.
