"Regt Col rank [...]
According to another message on this board: [#1]
"July 27, 1862, Special Orders Army of the South West #46
Lt Col Morgan is apptd Col to rank from the 23 inst"
[#1] I copied and pasted the text, but now I am unable to identify the original message. The Search engine here is not that good.
According to Bruce S. Allardice, Confederate Colonels, p.281, date of appointment [should be "rank" I believe] of Col. Asa Stokely Morgan was July 23.
Now I know it is very easy to confuse handwritten 3s and 8s.
Would you please confirm what is the number in the original source?
I suppose it is 23, otherwise it would conflict with the appointment date.
P.S. yes, I know, I am totally crazy about insignificant details.
