    Confederate Pioneers and Engineers?

    I was wondering if anyone has any information on the Confederate pioneer corps, and the later use of engineers in the Confederate army. I seek this information as I am trying to research it as a possible impression. Thank you very much.

    John Casler's "Four Years in the Stonewall Brigade" gives some insight, since Casler spent a portion of his time in service as part of a pioneer detachment. See also Todd's "American Military Equipage," Vol. I. Attached is an interesting picture by a bandmember of the 26th NC showing an exhausted Confederate pioneer on the Chickahominy, 1864.

    As [one of our cavalry] passed by, the general halted him and inquired "what part of the army he belonged to." "I don't belong to the army, I belong to the cavalry." "That's a fact," says [the general], "you can pass on." Silas Grisamore, 18th Louisiana
