While search for other items in the Adrian Expositor I came across this letter from a soldier from Adrian Michigan printed in the Jan 24 1862. Did this Michigan soldier know they were not Texas Rangers?

If the captured " mauraders" are wearing Confederate uniforms at time of capture or at least had them by their beds then the captured men are legitimate Confederate soldiers and can claim whatever regiment they want.
If said men have no uniforms then per the Leiber Code they may be terminated with extreme prejudice.
