Seeing the mention of Abbeville, MS in a recent posting, caused me to remember a reference to "Camp Abbeville" in a copy I have of the medical discharge for Pvt. A. J. Hemphill of Co. K, 1st MS Inf., my gggrandfather.
The discharge or pass was for him to return home due to wounds; he died Sept. 22, '63 at age 36, at home, probably near French Camp.
Is there any record of engagements near Abbeville, Ms in the late summer of '63? Was the 1st Inf involved? Was there a Confederate Camp near there or would it be a Camp Abbeville in some other state?
Thanks, for your help,
