Re: 17th Ark. men at Bentonville, February 18, 186

Ken, I am listing some references below. The men of the 17th were picking up stuff left behind by Hebert's men when they were called out of winter quarters and 32 of them were captured after being surprised by Asboth's men. It was a small affair, but led to Curtis realizing that he could flank the Rebs of out Cross Hollows. Bill Shea's book remains the best account of the campaign, of course.
