I don't mean to be nit-picky, but you mentioned the Army of THE Tennessee. That particular army was a Yankee army, not one in which Watkins wanted to be in.

Watkins was in the Army of Tennessee, so called after the State....The Army of The Tennessee was so named after the River.

I bring this up because I don't want you to look for your great-great grandfather in the wrong army.
