Larry,

Being in my coastal bivouac, I don’t have access to my Busey book, but before the week’s out I’ll reply with the most meticulous accounting available for the 47th Alabama, and see how it compares with that newspaper report.

Regards, Phil

Larry,

Please see the response I mistakenly attached to your 25th Va post : I’m hoping to get to grips with the 47th Alabama when I get home in a few hours.

Regards, Phil
