The Alabama in the Civil War Message Board

Question for Greg Wilson

You referred to a letter from Capt. John Thompson, Co. A, Beall’s Battalion, 1st Alabama Mounted Men, dated April 22, 1862, in the following posts:;id=1599;id=1597

I hope to find a copy. You mention sourcing information from “National Archives microfilm of compiled service records of soldiers in the 8th Confederate at the Birmingham Public Library”? Do you recall if that is the source of the letter? Your help much appreciated.
