I must respectfully disagree, most emphatically, about assigning a definitive provenance (as in "it was issued to the 13th NY") to ANY arm, without a DIRECT listing. In fact, there are those who postulate that an arm which was not listed in a particular unit, was almost certainly NOT in that unit, because, if it had been, it WOULD have been listed. Dick the curmudgeon is now climbing off of his soapbox . . . . . .
