Randy, facinating facts you have shared here about Americans (North & South) who visited/advised Egypt/Middle East during the middle of the 19th Century.
I recommend to anyone who enjoys reading/learing American History/American Civil War History any books by Stephen W. Sears (esp. his "Landscape Turned Red" book) and Don Troiani. All available at very inexpensive used/new prices on Amazon.com

There is excellent information on the Rebs and Yanks as post ACW military advisors in Egypt in this book which is available in paperback now.
One of General Gordon's aides in the Sudan was a former American Civil War officer.
