An earlier thread mentioned the transfer of the Arkansas State Troops to the Provisional Army of the Confederate States. I thought you all might be interested in reading the "Articles of Transfer" --

Articles of transfer of Arkansas Volunteers to the Confederate States.
July 15, 1861.

The military board of the State of Arkansas, upon the part of and in behalf of the State of Arkansas, and Brig. Gen. W. J. Hardee upon the part of the Government of the Confederate States of America, agree to the following stipulations and terms in regard to the use and control of the forces, arias, munitions, and supplies now in the service of the State of Arkansas:

1. The military board of the State of Arkansas, upon the part of and in behalf of the State of Arkansas, hereby transfers to the Government of the Confederate States of America (their consent having previously been obtained) all the troops now in the service of the State of Arkansas, consisting of the following regiments, battalions, companies, and detachments: The First Regiment of Infantry, commanded by Colonel Cleburne; the Second Regiment of Infantry, commanded by Colonel Gratiot; the Third and Fourth Regiments of Infantry, attached to General Pearce; the Fifth Regiment of Infantry, commanded by Col. David C. Cross; the Sixth Regiment of Infantry, commanded by Colonel Lyon; the Seventh Regiment of Infantry, commanded by Colonel Shaver; the First Regiment of Cavalry, commanded by Colonel Carroll; the First Battalion of Cavalry, commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Borland; the Pulaski Artillery, commanded by Captain Woodruff; the Clarke County Artillery, commanded by Captain Roberts; the McCown Artillery, commanded by Captain McCown; Trigg's Artillery, commanded by Captain Trigg; and a company of artillery attached to Brigadier-General Pearce's command.

2. The military board of the State of Arkansas, upon the part of and in behalf of the State of Arkansas, hereby transfers the use and control of the arms and munitions of war now in the service of the above-described troops, and such other arms and munitions as may hereafter be deemed necessary to be transferred, to the Government of the Confederate States of America, upon an inventory being taken and a receipt given for the same by Brigadier-General Hardee, or such agent as he may authorize to receipt for the same; the State of Arkansas retaining her property in the arms, with the understanding that they or their equivalent shall be returned at the close of the war.

3. The military board of the State of Arkansas, upon the part of and in behalf of the State of Arkansas, hereby transfers to the Government of the Confederate States of America all the commissary and quartermaster supplies belonging to the above-described troops, and agrees to furnish them with an outfit consisting of horses for artillery, harness for artillery, ammunition wagons, caissons, with camp and garrison equipage, and the transportation necessary for field service.

4. Brigadier-General Hardee, upon the part of and in behalf of the Government of the Confederate States of America, agrees, either by himself or agent, to receipt for the above-described stores, outfit, supplies, and transportation, and stipulates that said Government of the Confederate States of America shall pay to the State of Arkansas the amount expended, or to be expended, for said supplies, stores, &c.

5. The military board of the State of Arkansas, upon the part of and in behalf of the State of Arkansas, agrees to furnish the necessary clothing prescribed in the Regulations of the Army of the Confederate States to the above-described troops during the period for which they enlisted, and Brigadier-General Hardee, upon the part of and in behalf of the Government of the Confederate States of America, stipulates that said Government of the Confederate States of America shall pay to the State of Arkansas a sum equal to the cost of clothing of a non-commissioned officer or private in the Regular Army of the Confederate States for each soldier so furnished with clothing by the State of Arkansas.

In testimony whereof the parties above named hereunto sign their names and affix their seals.
