The American Indian as Participant in the Civil War
It seems substantial numbers of men in the regiment enlisted for two years when the unit was formed. Special Order detailed procedures for their muster out, pretty much routine so far as I can see. As yet I have not been able to find anything concerning Order Louis, August 13, Special Orders, No. All non-commissioned officers and privates of the 2d Regiment Artillery, Missouri volunteers, with the exceptions hereinafter referred to, who were enlisted before the 20th day of November, , will be mustered out of service, without delay.
All men who are now under punishment by sentence of a general court martial or military commission, all who have been tried and are awaiting sentence, and certain others against whom grave charges have been preferred, a list of which men accompanies this order, will be excepted from this muster out; all arms and other public property, in possession of companies or men to be mustered out, will be turned over to the proper staff departments.
All ordnance property and horses, in possession of Light Company L of this regiment, will be turned over to the proper staff departments. The commanding officer of the regiment and company commanders, also the mustering officer, will take care to see that the proper stoppages of pay are made out on the muster out rolls, against all men who have lost, injured or destroyed any public property, or who have been absent without leave.

The 2d Missouri Artillery, volunteers, will be organized and recruited to its proper maximum, as rapidly as practicable. For this purpose a military board will be appointed to examine the qualifications, propriety of conduct and efficiency of all the commanding officers of the regiment, and to consolidate the men remaining in the regiment after the muster out hereby ordered, into the proper number of full companies. Upon the report of this board, the Commanding General will order the muster out of such officers as shall not be found fit for their position.
Louis will make the musters required by this order. ErnieMac said:. That makes sense -- he enlisted on October 10, , and was mustered out October 6, That might well fall under the heading "discharged for the good of the service," as the Army was deliberately disbanding units preemptively whose soldiers' enlistments were almost up. Although his record shows him as "in arrest" at Fort No. AndyHall Colonel Feb 24, Yeah, I found this wonderful profile of Westerbeck on Ancestry, with all sorts of detail information and documents and all, then realized it was yours.
Good luck with your project! Drew Major Feb 24, Joined Oct 22, Messages 7, I was looking at his muster records and noticed that he didn't have any records for January and February, Maybe he just didn't show up.
Fort Number Eight where he was kept while arrested is walking distance from his home. Perhaps he got bored with garrison duty or got a better-paying job as a brick mason his trade. Anyway, I now have a working hypothesis that his two-month absence is related to his subsequent arrest. There were so many stories of the trials and agonies of the slaves who described the beatings and horrors of Kentucky slave holders who tried to prevent their slaves from escaping.

Many stories described horrific beatings given to female slaves whose husbands had enlisted in the Union Army. But nevertheless, some did make it though and although conditions were harsh also at the contraband camp, with disease, Camp Nelson was still their portal to another life. As I continued to read more, I was even more delighted to discover online, an actual image of the Camp Nelson Contraband Camp.
Camp Nelson Contraband Camp. One of the points made in the week long course on maps at Samford, is that many maps tell stories. This proved to be true, and it took me to an experience where I learned more about the lives of those slaves who escaped. I have such joy to learn of those who made it to freedom. And my heart aches for those who stayed behind and could not leave. Their fate was a painful one at the hands of angry masters in so many cases. I never would have thought that a week long seminar on maps would provide another opportunity to learn more about some dimension of the lives of the ancestors.
It is upon their shoulders that I stand. And so, I shall continue to trace the footsteps of the Ancestors.

These tribes signed an alliance with the South at the beginning of the Civil War, in One of the leaders of the Cherokee Confederate units was Stand Waite, the well known Cherokee leader and slave holder himself. Stand Watie was the only Indian with the rank of general in the Confederate Army. As noted before, there were many Confederate regiments from Indian Territoryand among them were the Cherokee Confederates:. The first unit mentioned above was that of the Cherokee Mounted Volunteersthis unit was commanded by Stand Watie.
There is a lot that is known about Watie himself, including the fact that he owned slaves. The Slave Schedule reflected his ownership of slaves.
