      That is correct, but I cannot find any good information on the unit to verify anything about it. All avenues I have used have little or no information regarding the unit. Just the name and that it was activated by Gen. Nathaniel Banks in the Red River Campaign in 1864.

So far, all I have found is an online article on texasescapes.com, and a grave marker at Campground Cemetery in Wilda Community, Rapides Parish, Louisiana, that is inscribed STEPHEN HERRING CO. A 1ST LA SCOUTS,and the marker is a US marker, not CSA. Also there are 4 CSA graves in the cemetery. There is no date of death or any other information on the marker.
