“Alabama River Rangers” - (Company A - 13th Alabama)

This fine company left here on Sunday last for Virginia. They took the

steamer, Coquette, at Bridgeport, Alabama River, about 8 o’clock, p. m. The

company is one of the best that has yet left the state, and is well

officered. We have many warm friends amongst them, and hope to see them, all

return to their homes to enjoy that sweet peace which neither they nor their

country have ever broken. The following is a list of the officers and
