Generals of the Civil War  

The War for Southern Independence:

20th Mississippi Infantry

Company C (Carroll Guards)


Attached is a listing of casulties suffered by the 20th Mississippi infantry at Ft. Donelson, TN in February 1862. The report was written by Major W. M. Brown, commanding the regiment. The regiment was composed of men from
Winston, Boliver, Monroe, Carroll, Noxubee, Harrison, Scott, Jasper and Attala Counties in Mississippi. I hope this is of use.
