We have dicovered that our ancestor's Civil War records might be under a misspelled name. Eli Branic might be documented as "Eli Branie" with the "U.S. Indian Troops". We have also connected him with the 2nd Cherokee Mounted Volunteers or the 2nd Regimental Cherokee Mounted Volunteers, CSA.
Who were the U.S. Indian Troops? Is there a muster roll of names and Native American recognition?
We are looking for any information on either Eli Branic or Eli "Branie"
