Help getting muster in date for this cw soldier

+7 votes
I let my subscription to fold3 expire  which is where i usually found this info, I would like to find his muster in date to include with the cw sticker. This soldier was KIA at Gaines Mill.

There will be another Joshua Hanks from the same county in Texas  however he is 44 yrs old and is in a cavalry unit. He's this soldiers uncle. Thanks

        I'm looking at the records in Fold 3. Is the Joshua B Hanks you are looking for the same one who was killed in an engagement in Coal Harbor, VA, 27 Jun 1862? Co. H, 1st Reg, Texas Infantry, Capt. Alex Rainey's Company. Enlistment: 24 Jun 1861.
