Re: Mutiny at Fort Jackson
Yes "History of the 9th Regiment Connecticut Volunteers the Irish Regiment" by Thomas H Murray 1903. Also my own research om Lt Bolger he is listed in Confederate and Union records. He started out with the Confederate School of Practice. He must of been one hell of a soldier as to rise to Sergeant Major in the 9th, then promoted to 1st lt. Sadly he never applied for a pension. He enlisted in the Confederate Regular Army in Memphis Tenn. Was captured at Ft St Philip and enlisted in 9th Connecticut May 31 1862. The 9th Connecticut took on 100+ men in New Orleans ca 1862-63 many of them Confederates, as was Sgt Bolger. When the 9ths time was up in 1864 they were broke down to a 4 company battalion sent to the Shenendoah valley with rest of the 19 Army Corps. 40+ of the New Orleans enlistees signed on and stayed till the end untill the regiment was mustered out in August of 1865. Bolger never showed up in Connecticut after muster out. Im trying to find out what hapended to him. His photo is in the 1903 regimental history. I am working on a new regimental history.
