Camp Amrstrong, Miss

1-Can anyone enlighten me as to wher Camp Armstrong was located during July 1862?

2- Can anyone help me for period June to September 1862, as to whether dismounted 3rd Regiment Arkansas Cavalry was under Gen Van Dorn at Vicksburg June 27, and/or Baton Rouge August 1 to 5. 1862 ---- or were they one of two division left at Tupelo with Gen Price?

My interest is in Co A, 3rd Ark Cav, namely Capt Oliver Crosby GRAY. 28 Aug, Special Order 72, of Hq Army of the West (Price) "detailed him in charge of Horses and recruits", and Sep 1 he was in (or heading for) Arkansas gathering their horses so they could remount, having been afoot since April.
