This bio mentions His being a staff officer during Pea Ridge. It was the staff of Gen
Ben McCulloch that He served.

His bio says he saw no action at Bull Run, but the OR mentions him. He also said he joined right after that by crossing a river (forget which one) into CS territory. Different accounts vary.

The book I'm reading uses both the words "fight" and "fought" when describing Armstrongs actions at Bull Run.

Confederate Generals: What They Were Doing in 1883
This is another good article I found in the Livingston Journal. The editor states it appeared in the Washington Herald. Date and source inserted in article.
NOTE: Due to the number of generals mentioned, I was unsure where to post this....
