Mutiny in Company D, 7th Kentucky Volunteer Infantry

I have a muster record for Private Harry Francis claiming:

JAN_FEB_64   absent, under arrest 2/5/64, reduced to ranks from 1st Corp

I am puzzled as to what else may have happened on February 5th, 1864.  If anyone has any clues, please drop me a comment here.  While I wait, I’ll try to see if anyone else in the regiment had something in their records reflecting calamity.

Curious indeed.  At one point I thought this may have been related to Captain Andrew Clark’s resignation but that happened the year prior.  Quite the mystery.

    I’m not sure what REALLY happened in regards to the mutiny…From what I have gathered several soldiers from Owsley County were upset that a fellow soldier from there was being punished…for what I don’t know. My great-great-great-grandfather Elisha Thomas was involved.

    If you can find more, please post it here.
