Aslo, the 15th (Hawkins') Mississippi Battalion Sharpshooters was made up of troops from MS, AL, AR, & TN. Even though it is listed as a mississippi unit it contained men from the above states.

Daniel Colmans Diary specifically states he was from Alabama and so do post war articles in the Confederate Veteran state the same as well.
