magyar honved c.1849 #hungary

has anyone successfully traced an ancestor's participation in the 1848 rebellion against the habsburgs?

i've come across a tantalizing reference to my gggf (or his namesake), EPSTEIN Zsigmond, mentioned in a recent paper on the history of the revolution, and his involvement in an army hospital in tiszafured. it would seem to be the right time and place, more or less, but i have no indication of his rank or unit.

are there any sources for looking up his military records?
