This undertaking has been done with a large amount of attention to details supplied by official documents of the American Civil War as well as a gathering of information from civil documents plus the addition of "a small helping of speculation" by this researcher. While keeping in mind the old addage, “you are only as good as your sources”, this researcher has attempted to paint a picture of his Great-great grandfather’s Civil War Regiment which ENDURED those terrible wars years of 1861-1865.
