Re: Rfle of Co. F 36 Mississippi Vol.

I've been looking, but have found little info for you. Below is all that I have found.

HEADQUARTERS HÉBERT'S BRIGADE,
Camp near Demopolis, August 31, 1863.

R. R. HUTCHINSON,
Asst. Adjt. Gen., Dept. of Mississippi and East Louisiana.

{body of letter deleted}

I remain, respectfully, your obedient servant,
LOUIS HÉBERT,
Brigadier-General.

P. S.--It may be proper to state that at the surrender, on July 4, I stacked on my line, or left in the trenches, about 2,075 serviceable small-arms and five pieces of serviceable light artillery. One-fourth of the enlisted men had two pieces small-arms--one musket and one rifle. All other artillery was at the time unserviceable.

The 36th Miss. Inf. was part of this brigade, at this time. As you can see, one-quarter of the brigade had both a musket and a rifle. But these were stacked and left at Vicksburg.
