    Regarding your OOB at Perryville, Wood’s Brigade was commanded by Brig. Gen. Sterling Alexander Martin Wood, commonly referred to as “Sam Wood.”

    At Perryville, Wood’s brigade consisted of the 16th AL, the 32nd MS, the 44th TN, Hardcastle’s 33rd MS, and Baxter’s Battery. Hardcastle’s 33rd MS was formed out of the old 3rd MS BN when three companies, two from the 27th AL and one from Mississippi, were added after Shiloh, which raised the unit to regimental status.

    They were the 33rd MS only at Perryville and were designated the 45th MS when it was discovered that Hurst’s 33rd MS already existed.

    This is all discussed in some detail in my book, “The Third Battalion Mississippi Infantry and the 45th Mississippi Regiment: A Civil War History, ” published by McFarland Publishing Co.

      Thanks for the info. These Orders of Battle are copied directly from books on the battles. You might want to take this one up with Ken Noe.

    I would like to correct an error I made in the OOB for S.A.M. Wood’s Brigade at Perryville. The regiments I listed on 24 September 2009 pertain to the June 1862 organization of Bragg’s army, not to their organization at Perryville.

    In Bragg’s later reorganization of forces for the Kentucky Campaign, S.A.M. Wood’s brigade consisted of: the 16th and 33rd Alabama, the 3rd Confederate, the 32nd MS, Hardcastle’s 33rd Mississippi, Hawkin’s 15th MS BN Sharpshooters, and Semple’s Alabama Battery.

    (Perhaps a note for your readers who are particularly interested in S.A.M. Wood’s Brigade. Capt. A.T. Hawkins led a company of pioneers/sharpshooters drawn from Wood’s Brigade during the march to Kentucky and at the Battle of Perryville, but he did not officially command a battalion until December 1862 when a second company, also drawn from Wood’s brigade, was added to his command and it officially became Hawkins’ 15th MS BN Sharpshooters.)
