    Munford is known to be biased against Stuart, but that doesn't mean he's factually wrong in what is refered to here.

    Does anyone know more in detail about the issue of Stuart gaining command of the cavalry and numbering his former regiment the 1st?

    That about sums it up. Johnston thought Stuart walked on water and Beauregard thought highly of him too. And if he wanted to number his regiment the 1st, he could. If Radford/Munford/whoever couldn't suck it up and deal, that doesn't reflect well on them.

    CORRESPONDENCE, ORDERS, AND RETURNS RELATING TO OPERATIONS IN MARYLAND, PENNSYLVANIA, VIRGINIA, AND WEST VIRGINIA FROM APRIL 16 TO JULY 31, 1861.
    CONFEDERATE CORRESPONDENCE, ETC.--#3
    LYNCHBURG, VA., May 16, 1861.
    Col. R. S. GARNETT, Adjutant-General, Virginia Forces:
    COLONEL: I arrived here this morning, and have assumed command of the Virginia, volunteers mustered into the service of the State at this place. It was not possible for me to get here sooner, as I was compelled to make some preparation to enable me to go into the service. I find that Lieutenant-Colonel Langhorne has mustered into the service two companies of cavalry, one from Lynchburg and the other from Bedford; also, seven companies of infantry, two from Lynchburg, two from Bedford, two from Botetourt, and one from Floyd. Two companies reached here this evening from Roanoke, and will be mustered into the service to-morrow. The company of cavalry from Lynchburg, commanded by Capt. John S. Langhorne, has sabers, but no other arms.
    [excerpt]
    I find matters here in quite a confused state, owing to the inexperience of the officers of all the departments. Lieutenant-Colonel Langhorne has made no apportionment of troops among the counties to rendezvous here, and, in fact, has made no call, specifying the number to be received at this place. He has merely given notice, in the papers, that he would muster into service volunteer companies from the counties designated. This has produced a good deal of uncertainty and confusion. I do not wish this to be considered as a complaint against Colonel Langhorne. It results from his entire want of experience in such matters. I am satisfied he has been endeavoring to discharge his duty faithfully; but I would very respectfully suggest that it is rather out of the usual course to intrust to a mustering officer, of inferior rank, so large a discretion in regard to calling out volunteers. It strikes me that a call stating the number of regiments to be received here and the number and kind of companies to be raised in each county would facilitate the business very much. Some of the counties,as, for instance, Henry, Patrick, Carroll, Giles, Mercer, Tazewell, Wise, Buchanan, and McDowell, are remote from the lines of railroad, and cannot be communicated with very expeditiously, and, therefore, it is important that the call upon them should be definite. I would also suggest that it is not likely that there will be more cavalry companies from the counties east of the mountains except the two already mustered and one from Franklin unless, perhaps, one may be raised in Campbell. The counties west of the Alleghany must be relied on to furnish the remainder of the companies required to make out a regiment. Colonel Radford has reported, and he would prefer having command of the regiment of cavalry, and I think it would be better to give it to him, as he will, in all likelihood, be the only colonel that will be available who has had experience as a cavalry officer. I do not understand exactly the last orders in regard to the troops from Campbell, Bedford, Botetourt, Roanoke, and Craig (letter from Major-General Lee, of May 9). Am I to organize a regiment out of said troops, and give Colonel Radford the command of it, or shall I give him command of the whole, ncluding the cavalry companies, and order him to report with them to Colonel Cocke? Shall I send off said troops before they are armed, or wait for their arms Lieutenant-Colonel Langhorne informs me that he received instructions to send Captain Moorman's company (called the Beauregard Rifles) to Richmond, to be armed. The order, however, has been mislaid., and, as he may have misunderstood its tenor, and the instructions are inconsistent with the orders to me to send the troops from Campbell, &c., to Colonel Cocke, I have thought proper to Wait for further orders, which, for dispatch, can be sent by telegraph, if the company is to be sent to Richmond.
    [excerpt]
    I hardly think much can be done in the way of arming cavalry companies with double-barreled gun in this region. A number of the men have not got them, and have not the means of purchasing them if they were to be had.
    You will pardon the length of this letter, but I thought it better to embrace all the matters about which I want instructions, and about which it is necessary to communicate with you, in one letter than several.
    Very respectfully, your obedient servant;
    J A. EARLY,
    Colonel, Volunteers, Commanding at Lynchburg, Va.

    Col. J. A. EARLY, LYNCHBURG,, Va.:
    SIR: In reply to your letters of the 16th and 17th instants,(+) the commanding-general now instructs me to say that he has this day ordered the Ordnance Department to forward to your address one thousand original percussion muskets, one thousand altered, and one thousand flint locks, and sixty thousand rounds of ammunition, to be issued by you to such companies of Virginia volunteers without arms as may be mustered in at Lynchburg, or arrive there already mustered in. The ten companies which you have reported may be organized into a regiment, to the command of which you may assign Colonel Radford, if they are the companies raised by him and reported to the governor. If they be not, you may assign Colonel Radford, or any other colonel, and field officers to them as may be deemed best,. observing the rule as far as practicable to associate together companies and field officers from the same region of country. As soon as this regiment is organized and armed, order it to report to the commanding officer at Culpeper Court-House. In regard to staff officers of experience, the general regrets to inform you that there are none to be had at present, and hopes that you will be able to instruct those you already have until they shall become useful.
    I am, &c.,
    L S. GARNETT,
    Adjutant General.

    CONFEDERATE CORRESPONDENCE, ETC.--#9
    HEADQUARTERS, June 7, 1862.
    Hon. GEORGE W. RANDOLPH,
    Secretary of War:
    I grieve at the death of General Ashby. I hope he will find a successor. I doubt whether Radford would be. Ransom cannot be spared from his brigade nor would he, I presume, exchange his command for the cavalry of Jackson. We must endeavor to find some one. General Stuart mentions Col. Fitz. Lee, of the First Virginia Cavalry. I do not know whether he could carry with him Ashby's men.
    Send the Georgia regiments you mention. They will be some help. We must aid a gallant man if we perish.
    Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
    R. E. LEE,
    General.
    P. S.--How would Col. Thomas T. Munford, of Second Virginia Cavalry, answer? He seems to be a good officer, judging at this distance, and was elected in place of Radford. General George [H.] Steuart, of the Maryland Brigade, is with Jackson. He is a cavalry officer.

    HEADQUARTERS VIRGINIA FORCES,
    Richmond, Va., June 1, 1861.
    Some confusion having arisen in respect to the designation, by numbers, of the regiments called into the service of the State of Virginia, it becomes necessary that they should be more clearly enumerated. Therefore, the regiments will be known hereafter by their numbers in the order below given: First Regiment, Col. P. T. Moore; Second Regiment, Col. J. W. Allen; Third Regiment, Col. R. A. Pryor; Fourth Regiment, Col. James T. Preston; Fifth Regiment, Col. Kenton Harper; Sixth Regiment, Col. William Mahone; Seventh Regiment, Col. James L. Kemper; Eighth Regiment, Col. Eppa Hunton; Ninth Regiment, Col. George W. Richardson; Tenth Regiment, Col. Arthur C. Cummings; Eleventh Regiment, Col. Samuel Garland, jr.; Twelfth Regiment, Col. D. A. Weisiger; Thirteenth Regiment, Col. A. P. Hill; Fourteenth Regiment, Col. J. G. Hodges; Fifteenth Regiment, Col. T. P. August; Sixteenth Regiment, Col. Charles A. Crump; Seventeenth Regiment, Col. M.D. Corse; Eighteenth Regiment, Col. R. E. Withers. This number comprises those regiments which have already been formed, and are now in the field or in garrison. Other regiments to be hereafter received into the service will be numbered as follows: Nineteenth Regiment, Col. P. St. G. Cocke; Twentieth Regiment, Col. William Gilham; Twenty-first Regiment, Col. Thomas J. Jackson; Twenty-second Regiment, Col. C. Q. Tompkins; Twenty-third Regiment, Col. William B. Taliaferro; Twenty-fourth Regiment, Col. Jubal A. Early; Twenty-fifth Regiment, Col. George A. Porterfield; Twenty-sixth Regiment, Col. R. E. Colston; Twenty-seventh Regiment, Col. William W. Gordon; Twenty-eighth Regiment, Col. Robert T. Preston; Twenty-ninth Regiment, Col. John J. Coleman; Thirtieth Regiment, Col. R. C. W. Radford; Thirty-first Regiment, Col. William J. Willey; Thirty-second Regiment, Col. L. Wilson; Thirty-third Regiment, Col. J. B. Gibbons; Thirty-fourth Regiment, Col. J. W. Ware; Thirty-fifth Regiment, Col. Alfred Beckley; Thirty-sixth Regiment, Col. A. T. Bledsoe. It is to be distinctly understood that this enumeration of regiments has no reference to the rank of the respective colonels; that rank is alone established by date of commission.
    By order of Major-General Lee:
    R. S. GARNETT,
    [2.] Adjutant-General.
    ------------
    ==============================
    NOTE: It is the custom of the military, to have the commanding officer assigned to the First Battalion, First Regiment, First Brigade, etc... As Stuart was promoted over Radford, to designate himself as the First Cavalry is normal, as it would be humiliating to have a commanding officer assigned to the 2nd Cavalry, whereas a subserviant officer/lesser rank to be in charge of the First Cavalry. Perhaps the beef was not the Cavalry designation but, to be passed over as a Senior Colonel and have a Junior Colonel be promoted.

    Manassas, Va., August [13?], 1861. (Received 14th.)
    General SAMUEL COOPER,
    Adjutant-General C. S. Army, Richmond, Va.:
    GENERAL: May I request you to send me as soon as practicable a general officer, or even colonel with a military education and some practice, to command the Louisiana brigade, which otherwise will never be able to accomplish anything. I have already applied for one or two officers for that position, but they could not be had. The last one I applied for as colonel of Provisional Army C. S. was Col. R. C. W. Radford, of the Virginia cavalry, formerly of the U.S. dragoons. No answer has yet been received. I also applied for Lieut. Col. W. H. Jenifer, Provisional Army of Virginia, to be made lieutenant colonel of the Provisional Army C. S., so that he might take the command of my cavalry in Colonel Radford's place. I regret to have to report an unusual amount of sickness in this army corps--as much as 50 per cent. in the First Brigade (Bonham's). I must request to be informed also as to the relative rank of the brigadier-generals under my command.
    I remain, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
    G. T. BEAUREGARD,
    General, Commanding.
    P.S.--Can it not be so arranged as to make General Longstreet second in command!

    General S. COOPER,
    Adjutant and Inspector General, Richmond:
    GENERAL: In answer to an inquiry dated September 22, from the Honorable Secretary of War, I have the honor to submit the following reports, viz:
    I. Statement of the whole number of first lieutenants in the C. S. Army, the whole number appointed to date, and the number of vacancies to be filled.(*)
    II. Similar statement of second lieutenants.(*)
    III. Tabular statement of the regiments, battalions, and independent companies mustered into service from each State and their present location.
    IV. Statement of generals who are in independent commands, with a list of the generals subordinate to them.
    In regard to the clerical force in this Department, about which the Secretary inquires, I would respectfully suggest that temporary employment is now ready for at least three more clerks. The constant increase of papers and business cannot be attended to by the present force.
    The returns from many States are so very incomplete and the commanders of regiments, &c., have been so remiss in forwarding muster-rolls and returns to this Department as to render a complete report out of our power. The State of North Carolina, furnishing twenty-six regiments, has only four regiments whose muster-rolls have been received. The State of Virginia, with over sixty-five regiments, has many rolls of independent companies which cannot be classified, from our ignorance of its regimental organizations. Return No. III gives as a total 254 regiments. Other regiments are organized and organizing which are yet unreported.
    I am, sir, respectfully, your obedient servant,

    NOTE: "Generals are like Gods on the battlefield" [quote from movie Gettysburg]--Stuart and Robert E. Lee are very close, it is very possible to remain on Robert E. Lee's good side, to have his relative in the First Virginia Cavalry -- Mumford is promoted to head a Brigade himself so, though not a Brig. General - he is in command of a brigade. He is moved around as to command brigades as a temporary but, towards the later portion of the war he is finally promoted to Brigadier General as well as his own brigade.

    Here's some backstory from Longacre's Lee's Cavalrymen:

    Longacre calls the proto-2nd Virginia the "30th" Virginia Volunteers, while Munford called it the 13th. That's odd. Anyway, since Johnston was in command of the (then) Army of the Potomac, and Stuart had been part of that army before it merged with Beauregard's command, under which Radford was serving, it seems only right that Stuart's regiment would be called the 1st in Johnston's army, because it was. So, Munford's statement, that the 2nd was "the oldest regiment of cavalry in the Army of Northern Virginia," is not really true, is it?

    Regardless, one would think Munford could find something else to still be ticked off about thirty years later, like the fact that he never made brigadier general. Oh wait, he was ticked off about that too...

    CONFEDERATE CORRESPONDENCE, ORDERS, AND RETURNS RELATING TO OPERATIONS IN NORTHERN AND SOUTHEASTERN VIRGINIA, WEST VIRGINIA, MARYLAND, AND PENNSYLVANIA, FROM MARCH 16, 1865, TO JUNE 30, 1865.--#4
    SPECIAL ORDERS No. 6.
    HDQRS. MUNFORD'S CAVALRY BRIGADE,
    April 21, 1865.
    SOLDIERS:
    I have just received a communication from the President of the Confederate States, ordering us again to the field in defense of our liberties. General Johnston, with an army constantly increasing, well appointed, and disciplined, skill upholds our glorious banner. We are ordered to report to him. Our cause is not dead. Let the same stern determination to be free, which has supported you for four years of gallant struggle, still animate you, and it can never die. One disaster, however serious, cannot crush out the spirit of Virginians and make them tamely submit to their enemies, who have given us, during all these terrible years of war, so many evidences of their devilish malignity in our devastated fields, our burned homesteads, our violated daughters, and our murdered thousands. Virginians will understand that their present pretended policy of conciliation is but the cunning desire of the Yankee o lull us to sleep while they rivet the chains they have been making such gigantic efforts to forge, and which they will as surely make us wear forever if we tamely submit. We have sworn a thousand times by our eternal wrongs, by our sacred God-given rights, by the memory of our noble fathers and our glorious past, by our gallant dead who lie in every plain of our war-scarred State, by our glorious victories on many a well-fought field, that we would be free. Shall we not keep our oaths? Can we kneel down by the graves of our dead, kneel in the very blood from sons yet fresh, and kiss the rod which smote them down. Never! Never! Better die a thousand deaths. We have still power to resist. There are more men at home to-day belonging to the Army of Northern Virginia than were surrendered at Appomattox. Let them rally to the call of our President, and Virginia, our beloved old Commonwealth, shall yet stand triumphant and defiant, with her foot upon her tyrants prostrate, and her proud old banner, never yet sullied, with its "Sic semper tyrannis," streaming over her.

    Soldiers of the old brigade, to you I confidently appeal. You have never been surrendered! Cutting your way out of the enemy's lines before the surrender was determined, you, together with a majority of the cavalry, are free to follow your country's flag. The eyes of your Virginia, now bleeding at every pore, turn with special interest to you. Will you desert her at her sorest need? You will never descend to such infamy. Let us renew our vows, and swear again by our broken altars to be free or die. Let us teach our children eternal hostility to our foes. What though we perish in the fight, as surely as the God of justice reigns, the truth, the right will triumph, and though we may not, our children will win the glorious fight, for it is not within the nature of her Southern sons to wear the chains of Yankee rule.

    We have still a country, a flag, an army, a Government. Then to horse! A circular will be sent to each of your officers designating the time and place of assembly. Hold yourselves in instant readiness, and bring all true men with you from this command who will go, and let us who struck the last blow as an organized part of the Army of Northern Virginia strike the first with that victorious army which, by the blessings of our gracious God, will yet come to redeem her hallowed soil.
    THOMAS T. MUNFORD,
    Brigadier-General, Commanding Division.


    FAUQUIER, April 21, 1865.
    SOLDIERS: I have summoned you together for the last time. The vision that we have cherished of a free and independent country has vanished, and that country is now the spoil of the conqueror. I disband your organization in preference to surrendering it to our enemies. I am no longer your commander. After an association of more than two eventful years, I part from you with a just pride in the fame of your achievements and grateful recollections of your generous kindness to myself. And now at this moment, in bidding you a final adieu, accept the assurances of my unchanging confidence and regards.
    Farewell.
    J. S. MOSBY,
    Colonel.

    HEADQUARTERS LEE'S CAVALRY DIVISION,
    April 17, 1865.
    Brigadier-General MACKENZIE,
    Commanding Cavalry Brigade, U.S. Army, Lynchburg:
    GENERAL: I have the honor to inclose a copy of a paper sent me last night by Lieutenant Little, commanding detachment; it places me in an embarrassing position, and I must decline to accept your polite invitation until I can ascertain my status. It is only necessary for me to say I will obey orders when I am certain they are by proper authority. I beg leave to state that my command succeeded in driving the Federal cavalry from the Appomattox and Lynchburg railroad in our front on Sunday; that I apprehended the disaster which befell our army, and moved back rapidly into the main body of my command, leaving only a heavy skirmish line to cover my retreat. I was in the rear when your flag of truce was noticed by the officer in charge of my covering party. As soon as I was apprised that there was a truce I went to the front and asked to communicate with General R. E. Lee. General Devin, commanding U.S. forces, "could not allow me to communicate with him," and, after some little parley, I withdrew. I was at no time within your lines, nor did I expect to surrender my command or myself. If I understand from you that I was included in the surrender I most respectfully ask that you will first show I was surrendered before I can submit. I have not been able to see or communicate with any officer who knows the terms of General Lee's capitulation. Please state in your reply who was included. Many, I know, escaped into my command. Many are away on details and from other causes. Let it be understood at once and our people will know how to act and what to expect. The love of our cause backed by the proud and brave hearts of my command, will be a sufficient apology for my declining to comply with your polite invitation until I am satisfied that General Lee included my command, who had cut their way through your lines and are far from being in a condition to be captured. I shall follow our old flag and defend it until we are free. My men do not believe they could have been surrendered. If you will furnish me with satisfactory evidence I will submit to the powers that be, otherwise I shall not ask or expect any favors. If this paper could be sent to General Lee it would obviate many difficulties. My desire is to act in good faith, but I will take the risk until it is made clear.
    Your obedient servant,
    THOMAS T. MUNFORD,
    Brigadier-General, Commanding Division.
    (This will be handed by Lieutenant Tesh, bearing flag of truce.)

    HEADQUARTERS TWENTY-FOURTH ARMY CORPS,
    In the Field, Burkesville, Va., April 21, 1865.
    Brig. Gen. THOMAS T. MUNFORD,
    Commanding Division:

    GENERAL: Your communication of the 17th instant to Brigadier-General Mackenzie has been referred to me as the senior officer of the commission appointed by Lieutenant-General Grant to arrange the terms of surrender of General Lee's army. In reply I have the honor to state that by the agreement entered into by the officers appointed on each side it is provided that "The surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia shall be construed to include all the forces operating with that army on the 8th instant," "except such bodies of cavalry as actually made their escape previous to the surrender." The question, therefore, as to the actual escape of your command is left to your decision.
    I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

    JOHN GIBBON,
    Major-General of Volunteers.
    P. S.--A printed copy of the agreement in regard to the surrender is inclosed.(*)

    NOTE: Thomas T. Munford is also same as T.T. Munford in the Official Records of the Rebellion. having first been assigned to the 13th Virginia Cavalry, was assigned to the 2nd Virginia Cavalry...rest of his history is wrapped in summary. There is no further hits after General Gibbon's letter to Munford with the copy of Lee's surrender at Appomattox.

    IN the month of May, 1861, I was commissioned by Governor John Letcher as Lieutenant-Colonel of the 30th regiment of Virginia Volunteers. This mounted regiment was mustered into the State service by Colonel Jubal A. Early, commanding at Lynchburg, and ordered to report to General Beauregard at Manassas. I served as a cavalry officer in the Army of Northern Virginia during its entire existence, and at the end of the war returned to my home in Bedford County. The return of peace after such a terrible struggle afforded ample opportunity to recall the splendid deeds performed by the gallant soldiers of my old command. No officer ever had a better regiment and brigade, and I feel sure that no one could have received a more faithful and generous support, under all circumstances, than was accorded to myself. I determined to collect the annals of my old regiment, then so fresh in memory, and by constant correspondence, and with the assistance of men and officers so well known to me personally, I believe I have completed it. If I have omitted a single name or done injustice to any one, it will ever be a source of regret. If I have accomplished nothing else by this effort, the satisfaction I derive from it affords me ample compensation. It has been a labor of love in a worthy cause. Every feeling is gratified when I see reflected the scenes where precious drops of blood were shed on many well-fought fields. I deeply regret that I could not collect the names and deeds of all the other regiments I had the honor to command. Many are scattered and gone; but the glory of each regiment will ever be the pride of the others. I know that the old 2d Virginia Cavalry would rejoice to add, if they could, a single flower to the chaplet that adorns their brow. Its fragrance, even, could afford them the greatest satisfaction.
    During Stonewall Jackson's memorable Valley Campaign and his battles with Pope, and our fight at Leesburg, company B, of my regiment, was detailed with General Longstreet's corps, as his body guard, and company A, 1st Maryland Cavalry (Captain Ridgley Brown commanding), served with my regiment in their absence, with great credit and distinction. A more chivalrous and gallant band of soldiers never flashed a blade or answered a bugle's call. It is with especial pride that I enroll them with my old regiment, since they add a lustre to its fame.
    THOMAS T. MUNFORD.

    Field Letters From Stuart's Headquarters
    Headquarters, 19th August, 1862, 4:45 P.M.
    General J.E.B. Stuart, Commanding Cavalry:
    General -- I have just returned from Clarke's mountain. The enemy as far as I can discover is retreating on the road to Fredericksburg. His route is certainly north of Stevensburg, and is thought to be through Brandy Station over the Rappahannock by Kelly's ford. You will therefore have to bear well to your right after crossing the Rapidan, unless you can get other information. I propose to start the troops at the rising of the moon tomorrow morning, which will give the men and horses a little rest, and I believe we shall make more than by starting at night. It is so late now that they could not get off before. The order for tomorrow you will consider modified as above. If you can get information of the route of the enemy, you will endeavor to cut him off; otherwise, make for Kelly's ford over the Rappahannock. Send back all information you can gather. I shall cross at Sommerville ford, and follow in the route of the troops towards Brandy Station. If you can get off earlier than the time I have appointed to advantage, do so.
    Very respectfully, &c.,
    (Signed) R. E. Lee, General
    Official:
    R. Channing Price, First Lieutenant and A.D.C.

    Respectfully recommended that Colonel Thomas T. Munford be appointed brigadier general, and assigned to the command of the brigade now commanded by him as colonel. My reasons for this recommendation are that no colonel in the brigade has been as deserving. He is a gallant soldier, a daring and skilful officer, and is thoroughly identified with the brigade as its leader. As a partisan he has no superior. While others not in the brigade might command a higher tribute for ability and military genius, yet when I consider the claims of the Colonel for this promotion, and the gallant service he has rendered, I am constrained to ask that he receive this merited reward. The assignment of a junior to this position would be prejudicial to the best interests of the service.
    Most respectfully,
    J. E. B. Stuart,
    Major General Commanding Cavalry.

    Colonel MUNFORD:
    SIR,--I desire to express to you officially my warmest thanks for the excellent marching and military bearing of your regiment upon review yesterday.

    K. Hale,

    I have no idea who to ask as far as that -- as he is dead I think. They played the theme song to "Beverly Hillbillies" and as I advance in age--they got to be advanced in years but--it could be possible!

    I want to point out that it looks like Colonel R C W Radford was the first to propose the first Guerilla warfare units of the Civil War as early as 1861....Take note of the following..

    A well known Confederate partisan ranger leader was Col. John S. Mosby of Virginia, who tied
    down thousands of Federal troops in a relatively small area in Virginia and was also perceived
    as a threat to Washington D.C. But who were the partisan rangers of the Confederate States
    Army, the Partisan Ranger Corps, that in many respects have served as models for all United
    States rangers and special troops?
    In May 1861 a man interested in military affairs in the village of Forest Depot, Bedford County,
    Virginia, sat down to write a letter to General Robert E. Lee. Captain R.C.W. Radford offered
    to raise and mount a company of active men for ranger or irregular service if the Confederate
    government was willing to arm them with long-range guns and pistols. The object of such a
    unit would be to annoy and harass an invading army, cut off escorts and detachments. Lee
    sent Captain Radford's letter to Colonel Jubal A. Early, who was in charge of organising in
    Radfords area and on the letter was made a note that the writer would probably be suitable
    as a company commander.
    Had Radford alone been the man behind the idea it would probably not have come to much.
    But as he wrote the newspaper Dispatch of Richmond had a leading editorial
    urging that men of the Old Dominion form themselves into companies for guerrilla warfare
    "If the line of march of the Federal troops is made to swarm with our guerrillas, who will pick
    off every man and every squad that dares to leave the main body of the invading column,
    the very success in the field will prove ruin, for they will tempt the men further and further into
    the interior and involve them more and more inextricably in the meshes and snares of
    guerrilla warfare". A Baltimore newspaper reported that hundreds of men were on their way
    to wage guerrilla warfare.
    The debate on guerrilla warfare and partisan ranger units continued. The Confederate
    government wanted the irregular warriors to be part of the Army and decided to form a
    Partisan Ranger Corps. It was not until 1862 that the Confederate Congress acted.
    On 21 April 1862 the Partisan Ranger Act was passed: "An Act to organize bands of partisan
    rangers. Section 1. The Congress of the Confederate States of America do enact, That the
    President be, and he is hereby authorized to commission such officers as he may deem proper
    with authority to form bands of partisan rangers, in companies, battalions or regiments, to be
    composed of such members as the President may approve.
    Sec. 2. Be it further enacted, That such partisan rangers, after being regularly received in the
    service, shall be entitled to the same pay, rations, and quarters during their term of service,
    and be subject to the same regulations as other soldiers.
    Sec.3. Be it further enacted, That for any arms and munitions of war captured from the enemy
    by any body of partisan rangers and delivered to any quartermaster at such place or places
    as may be designated by a commanding general, the rangers shall be paid their full value in
    such manner as the Secretary of War may prescribe. Approved April 21, 1862."
    It should be noted that in section 3 of the act are laid down special rules as to arms and
    munitions captured by the Partisan Rangers. A powerful incentive indeed to enlist in a
    partisan ranger unit instead of joining the regular Confederate army.
    Governor John Letcher of Virginia was however the first to organize for irregular warfare.
    By an act of the Virginia General Assembly he was authorized to issue commissions
    for the organization of ten companies of Partisan Rangers. They were to be mustered
    into state service but were to operate as individual units.
    Also in the in the West an active and thoughtful Commander, General Thomas C. Hindman of the Confederate District of Arkansas, was an ardent believer in partisan and guerrilla warfare.
    The most famous of all Partisan Ranger units of the Confederacy was as mentioned above the one commanded by Colonel John S. Mosby, the 43rd Virginia Cavalry Battalion. Around 800 men in effect was a small army and operated so effectively that even General Lee, who was no friend of partisan
    and guerrilla warfare, at one time exclaimed: "Hurrah for Mosby ! I wish I had a hundred like him".

    But the Partisan Ranger Act was repealed in 1864 after criticism from regular commanders of the popular ranger service. However, the door was left open to keep some of the partisan ranger units fighting behind enemy lines. Both Mosby´s battalion and the company of Partisan Ranger officer McNeil of Virginia were not transferred to regular service in 1864.

    One of the great students of Confederate partisan and guerrilla warfare, Virgil Carrington Jones, once wrote in his famous book Gray Ghosts and Rebel Raiders that the Southern partisans stumbled on
