I know I am very late on the discussion about the 38th, but want to put the information out about Desmond Wall
Allen's History of the 38th. I also read in another Regiment's history, that companies L, M, N, O, were a battalion of another regiment, who were assigned to the 38th, making it difficult to track, then the reorganization with the 27th Arkansas, further complicates research and rosters. Does anyone else know or have the information of the origins of that battalion? I have been trying to locate my files on the 38th. I will try and find the source and the original organization of the Battalion.
