19th Regiment,Arkansas Infantry [Dawson's]. After being involved in the Battle of Elkhorn Tavern, the unit was captured at Arkansas Post in January, 1863. Exchanged and reorganized, it was assigned to Deshler's, Liddell's, and Govan's Brigade, and consolidated with the 24th Regiment in September, 1863, and with the 8th Regiment in November. It participated in many campaigns of the Army of Tennessee from Chickamauga to Atlanta, endured Hood's winter operations in Tennessee, and fought its last battle at Bentonville.
During the spring of 1864 part of the 19th served in Hardy's [Dawson's] Infantry Regiment in the Trans-Mississippi Department.
My ancestor, Morgan Griffith, enlisted with this company 26 Feb 1862 in Nashville and served until Feb 1864. He was detailed to the Bde Comm Dept. Is there a way to find what campaigns he fought, what is the Bde dept, was he wounded, and any other information on him?
He is unlisted in the pension applications index, so that avenue is evidently closed. He is last found in the 1880 Sevier Co. census. I have been unable to find his death or burial location.
Thank you for any clues or help you may be able to provide.
