Hi, I can give you some information on one of your soldiers; J. L. Riley of Company I, 21st Mississippi Infantry. His full name is Joseph L. Riley, and he was a Private in Company I of the 21st. He was mortally wounded in the left groin and captured at Sayler's Creek, Virginia, on April 6, 1865. He died from his wounds at Lincoln General Hospital in Washington, D.C., on June 2, 1865.

This information comes from Riley's compiled service record - if I find anything else on him, I will send it to you.
