Confederate Civil War Records indicated that Hinds' company was also part of Forrest's Cavalry Department.  On September 25, 1864, Lt. Hinds was camped near Mobile.

An historic record was made based upon the original record borrowed from Mrs. Wright L. Smith, through Captain James W. Allen of St. Louis, Missouri (basically a reflection of the battles listed in the Missouri State Archives records).

This record showed a mark next to Prisoner Of War.  When General Taylor surrendered, William N. Hinds became a POW.

Here's William Hinds in the family tree (nephew of Ann Hinds Rice).
