Once these CS troops were officially exchanged they were able to be refitted for battle. When they left Demop they went to North Georgia but during the winter of 63-64 the were outfitted with new uniforms and weapons, some of them not so new. Some units received new Enfields while other got antiquated musket. One section of this camp produced a lot of gun parts as they were trying make 1 good one from several bad ones. Below is a thread we had on these awhile back and here are all the weapons parts found in this section of the camps. All of the muskets that were found in the cave at Lookout Mt came from here.

Understood, I did not realize that about being organized by state. I will look forward to seeing what you find from the Alabama camps.
