You are spot on. ..I just had a telephone call from our friend, Gary D. Bray of Forney TX, who also thought that "Hunter's Regiment" referred to Major Sherrod Hunter of Baylor's 2d Cavalry, Arizona Brigade. ..Yes, that makes more sense than the other choices.
Thank you. I appreciate your help.
Please send your e-mail address. ..I would like to send you a couple of files that may interest you, but I do not have your e-mail address at my fingertips.
