Below is a brief bibliography for the 34th Georgia Infantry Regiment. Company I, 34th Georgia came from Franklin County and were known as the Flintville Greys.

Confederate Military History, Extended Edition. Vol. 7: Georgia. Wilmington, NC: Broadfoot, 1987. See pp. 113-14 (2 photocopied pages) for a brief unit history.

See p. 105 (1 photocopied page) for a concise summary of the regiment's service.

The "Roster of the Confederate Soldiers of Georgia, 1861-1865" states about Baird, Russell J.- Private, enlisted May 12, 1862. Deserted. Apprehended as a deserter and conveyed to Camp of Instruction at Decatur, Ga., June 29, 1863. No Later Record.

His Company Commander, Caleb Chitwood, has some personal letters that are at the Georgia State Archives in RG-SG-Series 57-1-1, Accession #3338-03, Box 6, Folder: CHITWOOD.

My personal opinion: is a marginal source for historical research and dubious information due to the organization allowing just anybody to submit information without proper bibliographical proof.

The 34th Georgia was a sister regiment with the 39th Georgia in Cumming's Brigade, Stevenson's Division, the Army of Tennessee.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions.
