Has anyone ever run across any reference to Confederate soldiers at the Battle of Franklin complaining they did not have a fire arm. I heard they were told to pick up sticks or fire arms from any fallen comrades during the battle. Anyone else run across a reference to this?

Someone told me years ago they took a tour of the Carter house and the tour guide told them there were some CS troops that complained they had no firearm yet were being ordered into the charge. They were told to pick up sticks.
