Looking fo information on James McAdams Company "A". The only official document I have found was his release in Richmond, VA April 6th 1865. Family story is he was given $5.00 in gold and told to take the back roads to Missouri. I don't know where he was captured or where he went afterwards. He was a Blacksmith by trade, so the Yankees this probably kept him out of P.O.W. camp is my best guess. He did join the calvary but they made his unit into a Infantry Regiment. Any help is welcomed.
