Ole I have read Rolands book on ASJ Soldier in Three Republics.  Shiloh is an interesting topic.  We read this book for book group last year and talked about the what if question.  ASJ was here in California when the war started.  He came down to Los Angeles and left his wife with his brother in law in the Pasadena area.  Then rode along with a Mounted Militia that left Los Angeles and headed east taking a southern route , camping in site of Fort Yuma on the Colorado, and then on though Arizona territory to El Paso to Join the Confederacy.  Eliza remained here and eventually lived in a home called Fair Oaks which is where Fair Oaks Blvd in Pasadena gets it's name.  Her brother developed the area which is now East L.A. 

If you haven't read ther Roland book gert it and read it .  Very good. 


Widow and i will be touring Shiloh with Cal Cav on Monday after muster.
