"The Vicksburg Captives"

The Richmond Daily Dispatch printed, August 19, 1863, an article based off a piece it read out of the Chicago Tribune. The Tribune piece was titled "The Vicksburg Captives" and listed all the units captured and it also included numbers of included in those regiments. I edited the piece to simply show the Louisiana units:

Commands and commanding officers.

22d Louisiana, infantry, S Jones, captain.
23d Louisiana, John T Plattiner, colonel, 153 men.
3d Louisiana, David Pierson, major, 230 men.
31st Louisiana, James W Draughon, col., 523 men.
27th Louisiana, Joseph T Hatch, captain, 595 men.
17th Louisiana, Robert Richardson, col., 382 men.
25th Louisiana, llenThomas, colonel, 339 men.
26th Louisiana, W. C. Crow, Lieut colonel, 494 men.
