Yes, I have read Captain Totten reports in the O.R.'s. It seems that one interesting fact that has turned up is that Captain Totten's father William Totten worked in some undisclosed fashion for the U.S. War Department at the Little Rock Arsenal.
This may have been a factor as to why Captain James Totten and Company "F" 2nd US Artillery was transferred to the Little Rock Arsenal instead of some other such posting, in November of 1860. But as has been pointed out these assignments of federal troops to Arsenal in the interior of the United States during a troublesome period of late 1860 seemed to be a somewhat common event. Given the tensions of that time this would have certainly look as an implied threat to the southern people in combination with Lincoln's election win and all. And would have ceratinly thrown gasoline of a smouldering bed of embers of distrust of a people, who saw the United State Government and the Republican party as being a direct threat to their interests.
It almost looks like "Gunboat Diplomacy" was why Capt. Totten and his command was transferred to the Little Rock Arsenal.
