Similarly anyone who has knowledge of Brigade or Regimental level official reports or other unit records of Chalmer's Mississippi Brigade who joined forces with Jackson's, Woods or Adams Brigade in the action on December 31st, 1862 should post those references on the message board so we will all have access and can do research on other aspects of the battle.
Particularly interesting would be reports from the 7th Regt. Miss.(Col. W.H. Bishop, Lt. Col. B.F. Johns, commanding); Blythe's Regiment (Later 44th Miss., Maj. Thompson, commanding); 9th Regt. Miss.(Col. White commanding); 9th Battn. Miss. SS, Capt. Osbourne, commanding); 10th Regt. Miss. (Lt. Col. James Barr, commanding); 41st Regt. Miss. (Col. Ball commanding); and Garrity’s Alabama Artillery, Lt. Garrity, Lt. Bond commanding).
These reports could be a part of the unpublished portions of the Official Records-Supplemental, that are held either by state/federal archives or university collections.
Just as primary sources like letters, diaries and post war accounts are valuable, after battle reports not included in the official records, newspaper articles and other contemporary documentation are also valuable in placing units on the battlefield; and in many cases locating the burial sites for men who died in the battle since many were buried where they fell.
If anyone has access to reports, references, or any other unpublished sources that are relevant to the story of the Confederate Brigades at Stones River (Murfreesboro), please post those resources so others can benefit from the information.
