Arkansas Post Prisoners

In late April of 1863, the Confederate soldiers that surrendered at the Battle of Arkansas Post in January were paroled at City Point. They were in and around Petersburg and Richmond for the next few weeks. On April 30 the men not in hospitals were armed and sent to Richmond in response to Stoneman's Cavalry being in the area pror to the Battle of Chancellorville.
The Arkansas Post soldiers eventually were sent to serve in the Army of Tennessee.
I am looking for any references made in regard to these soldiers during there brief stay in Virginia.
Thanks in advance.
