Seeking info regarding 2nd Battalion, Arkansas Infantry, CSA. I understand it was formed by John Baker THOMPSON (1834VA-1862TN), president of St Johns' College of Little Rock and William N BRONAUGH (1833VA-1862VA), the vice-president of St Johns' May 6, then went to Lynchburg, VA.
I read Major THOMPSON requested his regiment be sent to Tennessee, and was under Fagan when killed on his 28th birhday, April 6, 1862 at Shilo and that
BRONAUGH commanded the 2nd Battalion,dieding 4-miles northeast of Richmond, 26th June 1962 from wound received that day at Mechanicsville bridge.
Where might I confirm these stories?
