3rd Arkansas Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: Pleasant Bohannon CollinsRank: Private Company: C

He lost both parents by age 10, raised by his maternal grandmother and uncle. Enlisted in Company C, 3d Arkansas at Monticello, Drew County, Arkansas on June 10, 1861. Fought at, and survived Bloody Lane at Antietam; Fredricksburg; and Devil's Den at Gettysburg, among others. Records from National Archives show he was granted leave January 15, 1864. Did not return to unit in March, reason unknown; but historical evidence reveals that by March, Arkansas and other Western States were cut off from the remainder of the south as Union controlled both sides of the Miss. River for 50-100 miles inland of both banks, as well as having more than 16,000 Union troops garrisoned in Arkansas. Travel by Confederate soldiers became extremely difficult and dangerous. Traveling in uniform would result in immediate capture or arrest. Traveling in civilian clothes would mean summary execution as a spy. Dropped from the rolls in Aug 1864.
