Description: This work is intended to be the companion set to Frederick H. Dyer's Compendium of the War of the Rebellion for the Confederacy. Civil War historians and genealogists with ties to Florida or Arkansas will want to own this volume that details the activities of Florida and Arkansas' units in the Confederacy. Chapters are included for artillery, cavalry and infantry units that are broken down by size: battalions, batteries, companies and regiments, as well as any other special designations such as Militia, State Troops and Volunteers. Entries include (as available) the name of the unit and any nicknames or other mistaken designations; a summary of the unit's organizational details: its date and location of organization, mustering into service, the number of companies for battalion organizations, armament for artillery batteries, surrenders, paroles, exchanges and disbandment or mustering out; the first commanding officer and an alphabetical listing of the other field-grade officers; the brigade and higher-level command assignments of the unit; a listing of the battles and campaigns the unit engaged in; and suggested further reading. A bibliography, a "Battle Index," and a "Name Index" further enhance this excellent resource.
