Re: Units at Galveston at the end of the war

Bret,

Among other reports for Galveston, here is one for April 27,1865.

Volume 48, Part 2, page 1288.

Something seems to be wrong today with the EHistory site for the Official Records.

The text does not copy as well from the Cornell site, but here it is:
