Re: 4th Regiment, Confederate Engineer Troops

Very likely Confederate. It may be the 4th Regiment Confederate States Volunteer Engineers.

From Crute, Units of the C.S. Army, 68:
"4th Engineers Regiment was organized during the summer of 1864 at Shreveport, Louisiana. Most of its members were from Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas, but it is doubtful that the unit contained more than three companies. It was assigned to Headquarters, Trans-Mississippi Department, and for a time operated along the western bank of the Mississippi River. The command was probably broken up early in 1865. Colonel Hugh T. Douglas was its commander."

On April 30, 1864, the 11th Missouri Infantry fought in the Battle of Jenkins' Ferry, the regiment's last major action. For the rest of the war, the regiment was encamped at various locations in Arkansas and Louisiana before being paroled on June 8, 1865, at Shreveport, Louisiana. (from Wikipedia)

Those two units would have been close to each other and if the transfer happened in the summer of 1864 or later, it would have been very possible.
