It was May 1st instead of May 6th which I have seen?
I'm sure that THOMPSON and friend BRONAUGH, with only 19 months in Arkansas, were loyal to their home state of Virginia, and encourged the 1st to go to Lynchburg, VA for induction into the Confederate Army.
However, THOMPSON' bio says he requested his regiment be sent to Tennessee for action. Is that documented, or is it simply another 'flower' to adorn his bio?
I don't find a Gerdes introduction/history/list for the 1st Regiment Arkansas Infantry Volunteers, as exists for all others I've been interested searching. Is there some reason? What can I access, if anything, to read of the 1st and Company D?
