Green B. Baker only appears as 'Green Baker' one time, when he initially enlisted in Orange. All his other files (as you suggested) are under G. B. Baker. He was ill, probably with pneumonia, at Camp Nelson in Nov 62. As 'G. B.' however, he was present for duty on every muster through the war. The last regimental muster was at the end of Apr 65. Green is listed as 'on furlough since 4.12.65.' He was probably on leave when he married in Jul 64 to the widow of Kenchen King Stokes, also of Company I who had died of a disease in
Lafayette Co., Arkansas on July 14th, 1862.--

The major battles of the Red River campaign were at Mansfield on 8 Apr. 1864, Pleasant Hill on 9 Apr. 1864, and Jenkins' Ferry, Ark. on 30 Apr. 1864. The Yankees withdrew from
Louisiana by mid-May, and when Walker's division returned from Arkansas, many of the soldiers were allowed to go on leave.-- No soldiers from Company I appear on any of the casualty lists for these battles.
