Roster of M'Neil's Rangers.
From the Times-dispatch, September 24, 1906.
The following is republished from the Staunton Spectator, by request, and published with pleasure, that it may be preserved along with other Confederate history that finds its way from ‘Our Confederate Column’ to the scrap-books of the old boys who ‘fit’ under ‘Marse Bob.’
The Confederate Column takes it as it finds it in the Spectator, adding only the little story at the bottom.
