James Dinkins served in Barksdales Mississippi Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia, for the first two years of the war, seeing action at Leesburg, Savage Station, Malvern Hill, Sharpsburg and the famous River crossing at Fredericksburg. His memoirs are particularly valuable in view of the fact that very few published accounts of any substance exist for this renowned fighting unit. When Chalmers command became part of Nathan Bedford Forrests cavalry in January 1864, Dinkins thereafter had the opportunity to closely observe the great charismatic Confederate leader as he participated in most of Forrests raids and campaigns throughout the rest of the war. As Dinkins himself wrote, Any man who can show that he was with Forrest the last year and a half of the war is no ordinary man, you can depend on that. Describing himself as the Little Confederate, Dinkins narrative is written wonderfully and describes the men and events around him.He was in the first battle of the war and in very nearly the last. When the Bonnie Blue Flag was furled after the surrender of General Lee and Johnston, he finally gave his parole at Gainesville, Alabama, where General Richard Taylor surrendered his department of which Dinkins was still serving. He had served through the entire war, from the beginning to the end, the first half in Virginia and Maryland, and the last in Mississippi, Tennessee and Alabama.
