Need names and /or numbers of Negros who may have served in these unit(s). I am also posting this to the Virginia pages as a more permanent request. The best I can determine this is make up of Negros in the Jackson/Winder Hospitals.

I have found a few cards such as the one below the letter by Surg. Scott, however they do not list race which tends to be a huge problem. There is no way to know if these men are the Negros mentioned or not. Perhaps in the future a more detailed list or letter will be found.

Hd Qrs Jackson Battalion
March 16th 1865


Sir
I have the honor to report that in obedience to your orders received through Surg Hancock I ordered my Battalion from the 1st 2d 3 & 4 Div of Jackson Hospital to the front on Saturday night at 12 o’clk and reported by order of Maj. Pegram to Col. Ship P.A.C.S. Comdg Cadet Corps.

I have great pleasure in stating that my men acted with the utmost promptness and good will.

I had the pleasure of turning over to Major Chambliss a portion of my Negro command to be attached to his Negro command. Allow me to state that they behaved in extraordinary commendable(?) manner. I would respectfully ask that Major Chambliss be particularly noticed for the manner which he handled that very important element to be inaugurated in our service.

Respy your Obdt Servt
