Thank you for that information. Yours is not the man I seek. I'm looking to identify the Captain Bowman who rode with guerrilla Sam Hildebrand on one of Hildebrand's patrols in SE MO in late June and early July 1864. There were several southern Captain Bowmans in Missouri service. I'm thinking the one I have is probably Captain Benjamin Lee Bowman of the New Madrid area, as Jim McGhee identified in his new book on pages 28-29.
That's good to know about Colonel Palmer of the 73rd EMM, however. Solid EMM detail information is hard to come by.
