      two things - other sources talk about a company acting as HQ guard for
      Stuart, so it is possible that Sorrell is talking about them and not the main body
      of the regiment, and two, Rowland doesn't really say when they broke away to
      rejoin Stuart.

      But at face value, Rowland does seem to corroborate your point, not
      Sorrell's account.

      Anyone picked up Hopkins' Book; "the Little Jeff" to see what he says?
      Supposed to be a pretty complete regimental, or so I've heard. I have an interest
      in their old commander, Will Martin, but I can't really justify the purchase
      of an eastern unit regimental for what would likely be a couple of pages of
      biblio references.
