Walton’s Report

30 01 2008


wapolka.jpg The official report of Major J. B. Walton of the Washington Artillery of New Orleans presents a slight problem.  It seems Walton has no official status in the Confederate order of battle.  As the four companies of the battalion were distributed throughout Beauregard’s army, I’m thinking of adding Walton under Bory’s artillery chief, Col. Jones.  I have to think on that.
