Thanks for the kudos, but I ain't done yet on the 7th Miss.
As I said in my messge, I don't have any facts, just questions. Maybe someone will dig a little deeper.
When I finally went to the national archives to hunt for the surrender rosters of the 7th Miss., I realized that since the AOT was so decimated that it stood to reason that the men would have been assigned to regiments as needed.
We'll keep digging.
