Re: 7th Arkansas Battalion
The 7th and 9th Arkansas Battalions were consolidated with the 8th Arkansas Regiment on May 7, 1862. I'm not sure where the 7th Arkansas Battalion was during the battle of Shiloh. At the time, it was assigned to Third Brigade [Jackson], Second Division [Withers], Second Corps [Bragg], but is not mentioned in the order of battle during the engagement; nor have I seen any reports of casualties in the battalion. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable than I will comment on this.
