And who could blame Company L, considering what many of them had been subjected to?

The people in northeast Mississippi generally are not very proud of the Union
traces in their part of the country. And who could blame them. Afterall,
Company L of the First Alabama Cavalry burned a large part of Corinth to the
ground before departing for Memphis in early 1864. Glendale was located
northeast of Corinth at a place on the map that now says "Glen." Sam
Pardue, a Corinth resident, has written a booklet about Camp Davies that is
probably still available. If you could find him, he could tell you how to find
the site where the camp was located.
Best wishes,
Don Umphrey
