      Ok,  Back from my trip.  So here is a few tidbits that apply to this list.  Quite a few CS officers that served in the West had experience in the Filibusters, several members of Breckinridge's Staff were part of the failed Lopez Expedition to Cuba in 1851.  Robert Tyler of Tyler's Brigade fame of the AOT was one of Walker's men, so was Col. AF Rudler of the 37th GA.  WHT Walker's brother was also with  William Walker.

        As was Crittenden's nephew, William J. Crittenden who was put up before the firing squad in Cuba.  Same fate as Walker's in later years.

          Almost forgot about Crittenden, he was also supposedly engaged to Lucy Holcomb, who later became Lucy Holcombe Pickens, and was pictured on CS currency, and namesake for the Holcombe Legion of Shanks Evans' Brigade.
