  6. The Confederate Order of Battle, Volume 1: The Army of Northern Virginia by F. Ray Sibley, Jr., pages 114-115: According to Sibley, Johnson’s Brigade was attached to Hoke’s Division. However, a look at the Stewart Sifakis Compendium entries for each regiment in Johnson’s Brigade shows them as attached to Johnson’s Division in June 1864. I have gone with Sifakis rather than Sibley in this case. More research is needed
