My name is John Holman and I am about to finish with a history/french double major. I am located in SC but I am a mixed breed since my father's side is native to SC while my mom's side is from Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. I have reenacted the American Revolution since I was 9 and just started a few years ago with WWII, but in doing genealogy, I have become very interested in the ACW. Although I know at this point that I am lacking the funding to put together the impression, I am doing the reading and the research. When I am able to put together an impression, I would like it to be mid/late war Western Federal. Obviously, I want to do it right (coming from a background of limited exposure to the ACW until recently) so that is why I came to Authentic Campaigner. Anyway, back on topic...
In doing research into my mom's side of the family, I found out that my great great grandfather, William Porter Smyth, was a Captain in Company G 35th Illinois. I feel I have exhausted my available resources and wanted to see if anyone could lead me to other sources that I may not know of. So far, I have used "The Army of the Cumberland" by Henry Cist, "Arming the Suckers" by Ken Baumann, "A Compendium of the War of Rebellion" by Frederick Dyer, and finally the Adjutant General's Report. Any assistance in better understanding the 35th would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
