This site gives you the history of Gracie and Moody as individuals. It then discusses in detail how the companies of Hilliard's Legion were reorganized.
Muster Rolls: (Incomplete--all information WELCOME!!)
Because of the reorganization most men would have served in both Hilliard's and the 60th. The men usually stayed together in the same Company but with a different letter designation.
A Company, under the command of a Captain, was usually 60-100 men. They frequently took distinguishing nicknames and were officially designated by an alphabetic letter.
10 Companies made up a Regiment, under the command of a Colonel, and usually had 750-1,000 men.
Brigades contained 4-6 Regiments and often took the name of their commander.
The Division was composed of 2-3 Brigades and commanded by a Major General.
The Army Corps were 2-3 divisions commanded by Lieut. General.
The Army was 60,000-90,000 men commanded by full general, Robert E. Lee
1st Battalion, Hilliard's Legion = 60th AL Regiment
The 1st Infantry Battalion was organized with 7 companies at Montgomery, 25 June 1862.
4 companies consolidated with the 3rd Infantry Battalion, and they were designated the 60th Infantry Regt at Charleston, TN on 25 Nov 1863.
The remaining 3 companies became the 23rd Sharpshooters Battalion.
At Chickamauga the 1st and 2nd Battalions suffered the heaviest loss, leaving more than half their number either dead or wounded on the field. They went into the engagement with 238, and had 24 killed and 144 wounded, 16 of whom were officers.

Here is a quote of Henry Levi Wilkins:
"In November 1862, we were ordered into winter quarters, but we were
soon ordered out to Murphreysboro, and while on this march fought the battle
of Stoney River - then came the orders for our command to join Pemberton in the
south, but while in the north we lost several of our company officers. -
Captain Yates resigned. Lieutenants Bell and McCathern also resigned and Lt
Stevens was promoted to Captain of our company, and W.W. Johnson was promoted to
first lieutenant, Williamson to second and Mat Odom to third."
