Thanks A Rushing:
From what I've seen the 26th June 1862 battle at Mechanicsville bridge pretty well did in the 2nd Battalion, and yes, I do understand what was left was folded in with 3rd Ark Inf in Virginia.
What I don't understand is the connection of Willam N BRONAUGH recuriting in Pine Bluff, Ark? He had come from Virginia to Little Rock Oct 1859, then left May 1861.
It appears the staff (THOMPSON & BRONAUGH), students (Captial Guards) and property (hospital) of St Johns' College, Little Rock, served Confederate States exceedingly well during civil war before reopening fall 1867 with Oliver Crosby GRAY (of Co A, 3rd Ark Cav), becoming president for 1871 through 1874.
