I am interested in my gggrandfather who served in the 7th Miss Batt. Infantry. His name is Ford Butler. He was captured near Marietta, Ga, in June 1864 and died at Rock Island, IL, the same year. I have been unable to find much on the regiment. I am interested to know if some of the soldiers were from Alabama communities rather than MS. I visited the courthouse in Quitman, MS, a number of years ago and saw records that indicated that he had enlisted in that community. Any ideas?
