Re: Mutiny at Fort Jackson
The units involved in the mutiny were Companies B, C, D, E, F, H, and K, 1st Louisiana Heavy Artillery Regiment; Companies H and I, 22nd Louisiana Infantry Regiment; and Company I, 23rd Louisiana Infantry Regiment. There were soldiers of Irish and German extraction in most, if not all, of these companies. I've read Pierson's article but not his book. His arguments do not seem sound to me.
