Thank you, Andrew; that's just the kind of report you need to preserve, and the kind I enjoy reading.
Shawn, there are a couple of other books on Longstreet's corps at Chickamauga that you might wish to check out. On the Texas regiments there are short and concise books by Val Giles (Rags & Hope), William Fletcher (Rebel Private: Front & Rear) and John West (A Texan in Search of a Fight). On the corps level there is Moxley Sorrel's "Recollections of a Staff Officer;" Longstreet's adjutant Goree's letters have been published but they have no descriptions of Chickamauga. Theo Botsford co-wrote a rare history of the 47th Alabama, so you can see it's the Georgia and sole (3rd) Ark. regiment in Hood's/Law's division that's so under-reported. Longstreet's other division McLaw's/Kershaw's was S.C & Miss. troops and they are very poorly documented (no reports from 2,3,7,8 & 15 S.C. or from the 13, 17, 18 and 21 Miss.). As always, I appreciate your help and hope to return the favors. Joe
