Re: Skirmish At Fish Lake Bridge
Bledsoe was not with Ferguson. During an earlier period, Ferguson wrote that "Stephenson's Louisiana Battery" served under him in northwestern Mississippi. There was no such unit, so I am now sure who he was talking about. The only other Louisiana batteries to serve in the area were Company B, Pointe Coupee Battalion, and Captain Edward Durrive's company of the 22nd Louisiana (Theard-Herrick) Louisiana Infantry Regiment, which operated as artillery.
