    Research 4th (Russell) Alabama Cavalry regiment organization

    I have a doubt about the formation of the 4th Alabama cavalry regiment of Colonel Russell. I have searched dozens of books and sites, the result is always this: "Russell's Fourth Alabama cavalry was organized at Murfreesboro, Tenn., in December, 1862, by the union of General Forrest's original...

    I am doing some research regarding Taylor's army in the Transmissippi.

    As many times as I have visited Gettysburg, until now I never noticed this left flank marker, which is usually hidden by grass and weeds. Any one care to guess the name of the regiment and were this is located?

    CDV Photo Capt. William P. Dougal 150th Pennsylvania Regiment.

    Capt. Dougal signs this on the back, and this same view of him was published in a book on the Bucktails. He was a large man, and was suffering on the march to Gettysburg, so his superior allowed him to come in a bit late and to command the regiment's late arrivals to the battle. But he got there...

    Pvt. John Walzer 201st Pennsylvania Regiment

    This is a 1/4th plate tintype of Pvt. Walzer. He served for the last year of the Civil War, but was not sent to fight in any major battles. They were used mainly to guard bridges, and important locations. The back of this tintype still has the revenue stamp, and that shows that the photo was...

    Uniforms of 9th Louisiana Infantry Regiment

    Hello Friends, I'm looking for sources that may reference the uniforms worn by the 9th Louisiana. My assumptions are that they left Louisiana in 1861 with the Camp Moore type uniform, and since they served with the Army of Northern Virginia nearly exclusively, they would be wearing Richmond...

    "...they presented the appearance of a regiment of ghosts."

    Washington Lafayette Clayton served as a Captain in the 2nd Mississippi Infantry and then late in the war joined a cavalry unit, serving in the 10th Mississippi and the 12th Mississippi Cavalry (which were pretty much the same thing). Beginning in 1905 he wrote a series of essays about his life...

    Odd Number Regiment

    What did officers do if a regiment was reduced by casualties to an odd number of men? How would they create the files? Would one man be left hanging in a company?
