Mark, the officer was Morton G. Galloway, of Pulaski County. He was an original member of the "Pulaski Lancers", one of the early volunteer companies organized before Arkansas seceded. When the Lancers mustered on April 21, 1861, to take part in Borland's expedition to Fort Smith, Galloway was listed on the roster as an "acting second lieutenant." After Arkansas seceded, the "Pulaski Lancers" reorganized for State service and joined the 1st Arkansas Mounted Rifles as Company F. At some point, they became known as the "Pulaski Rangers," probably when they reorganized. Galloway was elected captain on June 15, 1861. He was subsequently promoted to lieutenant-colonel, and was badly wounded at Murfreesboro.
