I am a long-time Civil War buff and amature historian, and was recommended to this august group by a friend who shares my passion for this particular time in our history.
I've attended and graduated two major universities in my state, and try to put that education to good use researching and enlightening folks about the various Mississippi regiments that distinguished themselves in the late War of Northern Agression.
There is an exception to my following native units; my great, great-grandfather was the First Sergant of Company A, 37th Texas (Terrell's) Cavalry which participated in the glorious Southern victory near Mansfield, Louisiana in April, 1864.
I look forward to sharing and learning from all of you in the coming months and years. And - if you have a Mississippi unit question . . . I know the guy who has the answer!.
