“Another company of reserves was organized in 1864 at Carrollton, with T.J. Booth as captain. The field of operations of this company was in the southeast part of the State, from Mobile to Meridian. Captain Booth, being an efficient tactician, was employed much of the time in drilling and commanding the regiment to which his company was attached. This company was paroled in Alabama by General Canby in May 1865.”
