Need help identifying McLaws' division inspector during Gettysburg Campaign
5/17/2020 2:23:56 PM
With libraries closed, I'm unable to locate the answer myself.

Possible name is "E.L. Coston" but I'm not certain that is correct.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you !

Greg,

This might help but you have to do the searching.

It should lead you to a list of CSA staff offcers by name, position, date served which is why its a search. Says Ellison L Costin was A I G to McLaws from Dec 1862 and "division inspector to same November, December , 1863."
