||Atwood, James L.
||Based on the attached photograph is appears that James Atwood may have served in the Civil War. He is wearing a Civil War era uniform and the photograph is labeled Pvt. J. L. Atwood in 1864. No service records have been located to date.
||It may be possible that Thomas Atwood was a Civil War soldier; however, this is NOT proven to date:
Thomas Atwood, Co. I, Texas Infantry; Enlisted as a Private; Discharged as a Sergeant; Capt. Hillery M. Bouldin's Company, Allen's Reg't, Texas Infantry.
This Thomas Atwood was 39 at enlistment placing his birth year at 1823 - which matches "our" Thomas Atwood.)
MUSTER CARD: 4/11/1882 through 6/30/1862: Enrolled 3/24/186__ in Belton by T. A. Supple; Mustered into service 4/11/186__ at Camp Terry by R. T. P. Allen. Notes on the muster card indicate that he received no pay.
MUSTER CARD: T. Atwood; Pvt., age 39; Sept/Oct 1862 - enlisted 3 years or during war; miles to rendezvous - 68; he was counted as present.
REPORT OF ABSENTEES: Thomas Atwood, Camp _ano, Johnson County, Texas, January 24, 1864: As of Nov. 21, 1863 - "Deserted and gone to parts unknown."
I believe this to be our Thomas Atwood - however, more research is needed.

Research notes from Jan Shaffer: The Texas State Troops were a state militia - somewhat like the Texas Ranger outfits organized for frontier defense. Enrollment in these companies exempted the men from draft and being sent back east. They hung around on the frontier chasing Indians and a few other places looking for Union agitators, CSA deserters and other undesirables. They were under the command of the Governor in Austin and not subject to Richmond's control. But Texas was always trying to get them funded by the Confederate States, but wanted guarantees that they would never leave the state, so it wasn't until March of 1864 that they officially became part of the Confederate Army, which did get them on Confederate payroll and thus they were eligible for pensions and widow benefits later in life.
Nonetheless, on March 1, 1864, the Mounted Regiment, Texas State Troops, was transferred into the Confederate Army. The transfer spelled the effective end of Texas? Frontier Regiment. While not totally successful in its mission, it had, nonetheless, provided a measurer of effective reassurance to Texas frontier communities at an anxious time. The transfer of the regiment to a Confederacy strapped by increasing shortages of manpower in 1864 generated enormous insecurity, vulnerabilities, and adjustments along the entire frontier. The Indian war on the frontiers of Texas from 1861 and 1865 had always been the unwanted stepchild of the Confederacy. Within weeks of the transfer, most of the ranger companies comprising the Frontier Regiment had been stripped from the frontier and redeployed to other areas.

Kerbow; member of the Georgia 10th Battalion, Georgia Infantry*; mustered up in Griffin County, Georgia on 17 Mar 1862; he was 35 and a private; Muster Roll for March-June, 1862 he was absent - sick in hospital in Macon; In Muster Rolls July 1862 through April 1864 - he was present; Muster Roll dated May/June - 1864 - "Died from wounds in Hospital - Richmond, Virginia - Chimborazo Hospital; he was admitted 26 May 1864 with abdominal wounds involving the bladder; he died 6 June 1864.
*The 10th Battalion was organized at Griffin, Ga, March 17, 1862, of companies mainly from Macon, Worth, Sumter and Bibb Counties. There were also men from counties surrounding each of the aforementioned counties. A 5th company was formed in July '62. In 1862, the Battalion guarded prisoners held at Camp Oglethorpe in Macon from May to December. They also guarded military installations within the city of Macon. They were sent to Virginia in December 1862 and attached to G.T. Anderson's Brigade through April '63. They did not guard any prisoners other than those at Macon. They participated in the Suffolk Campaign of Apr '63 and were later unattached from any brigade and posted at Franklin, Va, for 8 months from August '63 to Apr '64. They did not serve in N. Carolina except for patrols from Franklin. In April '64, the Battalion was attached to A.R. Wright's Brigade and participated in the campaign from the Wilderness to Petersburg from May to June '64. Maj. John E. Rylander was killed at Cold Harbor. Capt. James D. Frederick of Co A, was promoted in his place. They were at Deep Bottom Aug 16, '64 and Weldon R.R. Aug 21, '64 and remained on the lines at Petersburg until the withdrawal Apr 2, '65. Maj. Frederick was wounded at Deep Bottom and the command of the Battalion eventually fell to Capt. Caleb Hill of Co A. Their last battle was at Farmville Apr 7, '65.
Since Charles Kirbow was admitted to the hospital on 26 May 1864, it is presumed that he received his injury in the Battle of North Anna which was fought May 23-26, 1864 in central Virginia.
He also appears on a Civil War Prisoner of War Record: C. H. Kerbow; Confederate; GA-Co. C.

From Wikipedia: In the Civil War, Missouri was a border state that sent men, armies, generals, and supplies to both opposing sides, had its star on both flags, had separate governments representing each side, and endured a neighbor-against-neighbor intrastate war within the larger national war.
By the end of the Civil War Missouri had supplied nearly 110,000 troops to the Union and about 40,000 troops for the Confederate Army.
From nps.gov: Overview:
6th Cavalry Regiment [also called Southwest Cavalry] was formed during the late spring of 1862. Many of its members were form the counties of Barry, Newton, McDonald, Jasper, and Lawrence. The unit skirmished in the Indian Territory and Missouri, then was assigned to General Shelby's Brigade, Trans-Mississippi Department. It went on to take part in Shelby's raid in Arkansas and Missouri, Marmaduke's Expedition into Missouri, and again saw action in Arkansas. The unit reported 30 casualties with Marmaduke and 19 at Helena. During the winter of 1863-1864 new men joined the command, and it was redesignated the 11th Missouri Cavalry. The field officers were Colonel John T. Coffee and G.W. Thompson, Lieutenant Colonel James C. Hooper, and Majors George W. Nichols and Moses W. Smith.

From Wikipedia: Gratiot Street Prison (pronounced Grass-shut) was an American Civil War prison located in St. Louis, Missouri and was the largest war prison in Missouri. Run by the Union Army, it housed Confederate prisoners-of-war, confederate sympathizers, guerrillas, spies, and Federal soldiers accused of crimes. It is well known for being the site of a daring breakout in the last days of the American Civil War. The prison building was previously a medical school named McDowell's College, which was confiscated by the Union Army and converted to a prison in December 1861. Its official capacity was 1,200 but at times it had 2,000 prisoners. The prison was used mostly as a transfer point for prisoners going to other Union prisons. It was located at the corner of Gratiot and 8th Streets in St. Louis, and demolished in 1878.
The location is now the site of the Ralston Purina headquarters.

The 27th Brigade District of Texas State Troops included Bell, Burnet, Lampasas, Milam and Williamson Counties. Bell and Milam formed the 1st Regiment and the other counties formed the 2nd Regiment. Brigadier General E.S.C. Robertson of Bell County commanded the 27th Brigade from 1861 until early 1862 when he became a staff officer in the Confederate Army. He was replaced by H.P. Hale of Milam County who moved the brigade headquarters from Salado to Cameron. A new militia law went into effect in early 1864, and Milam County was placed in a new 2nd Brigade District. This district was commanded by Brigadier General John S. Griffith and also included the following counties: Bell, Brazos, Brown, Burleson, Ellis, Falls, Freestone, Hill, Kaufman, Leon, Limestone, Madison, McLennan, Navarro, Robertson, and Williamson. A number of "frontier counties" were also part of the 2nd Brigade, but they served in a separate organization known as the 2nd Frontier District under Major George B. Erath. This included the counties of Bosque, Brown, Callahan, Coleman, Comanche, Concho, Coryell, Eastland, Erath, Hamilton, Johnson, Kimble, Lampasas, Mason, McCulloch, Menard, Runnels, San Saba, and Taylor.

Concerning this regiment the adjutant-general of the state says in his report for 1863: "For want of regimental reports this office is, with great reluctance, obliged to confine
itself to the remark that, having been organized in Aug.,1861, the 24th infantry early entered the field, and has been unceasingly engaged in the important events of the war in the
West; proving itself, on all occasions, when it had the opportunity, worthy of its full share of the honor attributed
to the volunteers of Missouri." In 1864 it served with Gen. A. J. Smith's corps in the Red River campaign, suffering considerable loss in the battle of Pleasant Hill, La., where it occupied a prominent place in the
line of battle. In Sept. and Oct., 1864, Companies A, B, C, D, E, I and K were mustered out because of expiration of service, and the remainder of the regiment was consolidated with the 21st Mo. infantry. Source: The Union Army, vol. 4, p. 265

Regimental History: Tenth Infantry
Tenth Infantry. -- Cal., Alvan C. Gillem; Lieut.-Cols., Frank T. Foster, John Feudge, Majs., Alexander Thurneck, Louis Mandazy, Middleton L. Moore.
This regiment was organized at Nashville, about July, 1862, and was at first known as the 1st Tenn. governor's guards. It was recruited partly in Nashville, partly in Rutherford,
Wayne, Hardin and Lawrence counties, and was composed of a mixture of Americans, Irish and Germans. Until the summer of 1863 the regiment did provost guard duty at Nashville, being encamped first at Fort Gillem and
afterward upon the capitol grounds. It was then ordered out to guard the Nashville & Northwestern railroad, where it remained until the spring of 1864. During the following year the regiment was divided considerably, detachments being detailed for various purposes. In the spring of 1865 it was ordered to Knoxville, at which
place and at Greeneville, it remained until about July when it was returned to Nashville and mustered out. Source: The Union Army, vol. 4, p. 382.
