In Response To: Battle of Pleasant Hill ()

This list was taken from Orders of Battle for the Red River Campaign, March - May 1864. I tried to whittle out the units which actually participated at Pleasant Hill on April 9, but most likely there are a few errors. Depending on which reference you use, there are a some differences in units that participated at Pleasant Hill, artillery units in particular. Using this as a start point, maybe some of the experts can tweak it to make it more accurate.
