According to @east tennessee roots he's found two of my ancestors, father John A. Williams and his son James A., on the rolls of the 2nd Mississippi Cavalry, and from what I can tell the unit spent most of its time in Frank Armstrong's Mississippi Brigade that seems to have been variously under either Joe Wheeler (in the Atlanta Campaign) or Forrest. Does anyone have sources for either a regimental history, or barring that, more information on the Mississippi Brigade? Any help or recommendations would be appreciated!

Didn't know if you've seen this? https://www.americancivilwar101.com/units/csa-ms/ms-cav-02-reg.html

I've gone over the Williams pensions in Louisiana and Mississippi at Family Search. Perhaps Family Search's content isn't complete.
