Andrew L. Flake joined Company "G", formerly Company "C", nicknamed "The Carroll Invincibles". It was organized on June 25, 1861 at McLemoresville, Carroll County, Tennessee; later became part of Company "G", 12th Consolidated. The unit became part of the 22nd Tennessee Infantry Regiment which was organized for Confederate Service on August 10, 1861 at Camp Trenton, Gibson County, Tennessee. It moved from Trenton to Columbus, Kentucky, where on September 7, 1861, it was reported in Brigadier Benjamin F. Cheatham's Brigade. On October 24, 181, it was in Brigadier Gideon Pillow's Division, Colonel R.M. Russell's Brigade, composed of the 12th, 21st, and 22nd Tennessee Infantry Regiments, and Jackson's Battery. A return from the 6th Brigade, 1st Division, Western Department, at Camp Beau regard, Jackson, Tennessee for the month of October, 1861, listed the 22nd Regiment as part of that Brigade, but detached. No actual record was found of the 22nd ever being at Camp Beauregard. On November 7th, 1861, the regiment was engaged at the Battle of Belmont. The 13th Arkansas, 12th, 13th, 21st and 22nd Tennessee Infantry Regiments and Beltzhoover's Battery were the force on the Missouri side of the river when the battle began. No record of casualties was found, but the 21st and 22nd were in the center in an open cornfield under heavy fire, and must have suffered heavy casualties. In January , 1862, the regiment was listed in the 1st Division, Western Department, stationed at Columbus, Kentucky, consisting of the 2nd, 12th, 13th, 15th, 21st, 22nd Tennessee Infantry Regiments, and Jackson's Battery. On March 9, 1862, the regiment was reported in Major General Leonidas Polk's Division, Russell's Brigade, which was composed of the 12th, 13th, 22nd Tennessee Infantry Regiments and Jackson's Battery. A note dated March 13, 1862 from General Polk to Brigadier General John P. McCown at Madrid Bend stated "Russells" Brigade, Russell's (12th), Vaughan's (13th), Freeman's (22nd) Regiments will move at once via Memphis to Tiptonville to your support." The evacuation of Island Number Ten apparently cancelled this move, and the regiment was next reported at the Battle of Shiloh, April 6-7. In this battle, the 22nd was in Brigadier General Charles Clark's Division, Colonel R. Russell's Brigade consisting of the 11th Louisiana, 12th, 13th, 22nd Tennessee Infantry Regiments and Bankhead's Battery. No report of casualties was found, but the brigade reported 609 casualties, not itemized to regiments.

Johnson's Brigade, consisting of the 12th, 13th, 22nd and 47th Tennessee Infantry Regiment, and Bankhead's Battery; but on June 16, 1862, the 22nd was consolidated with the 12th Tennessee Infantry to form the 12th Consolidated Tennessee Infantry Regiment.
