Craig Scott, thanks so much for sharing the history of W. L. Poythress'
unit, the 44th Infantry Battalion. This provides interesting context. A
further question for you: This man's father, Thomas M. Poythress, was
also a confederate veteran. TMP was member of Co. D, 2nd Va. Arty.
Regt., 22 Bttn., Capt. James T. Alexander. Would you happen to have
information on this unit and might there have been a connection between
the father's unit and the son's unit?
And great to hear from you.
Lyn P. Baird
