Captain Eugene A. Hawkins, Colonel William H. Willis, and Captain Howard Tinsley of 4th Georgia Infantry Regiment in uniform: a photograph in the Liljenquist Family Collection of Civil War Photographs at the Library of Congress.

Hawkins was First Lieutenant of Company H in Maryland in 1862. Willis was then Captain of Company I and commanded the regiment at Sharpsburg after Major Smith was killed there on 17 September.

Howard Tinsley joined the regiment in December 1862 as regimental Quartermaster and was probably not in Maryland in September 1862, but his younger brother William Davies Tinsley (1836-1879), a Private in Company I, was wounded at Sharpsburg and afterward disabled for field service.
