Crescent Regiment, 24th LA, Co L Alexandria Rifles
In July of '62 CO L of the Crescent Regiment was transferred to the 16th LA and it's officers resigned. I don't see any evidence that they were integrated with the 16th as a new or complete company, but possibly absorbed into another. Does anyone know the story behind this? They were the only non-Orleans company; did that have anything to do with it? Why did the officers resign? Were their casulties in the Corinth Campaign significant enough to disband them? Any information would be appreciated.
