Mutiny at Fort Jackson

This chapter illustrates how very little is known about Thomas Graham's life before he enlisted in Company B of the 1st Louisiana Heavy Artillery on February 28, 1861. Graham was then 22 years old, and volunteered on the first day the regiment started to recruit. His Confederate military record was uneventful until the mutiny. After that night, Graham becomes a larger figure in the historical record, and his life hints at the motivations of the mutineers as well as the perils they faced after their rebellion. At some point in the spring or summer after the mutiny, he enlisted in the 8th Vermont Volunteers. The Vermonters had started recruiting soon after they arrived in New Orleans, hoping that Unionists would replace some of the losses they had suffered from disease.
