When first organized, the companies averaged about 110 men each, but were supposed to be about 140 men each. Many Calhoun men who lived near the county lines joined companies formed in Chickasaw, Yalobusha, Grenada and Pontotoc Counties. At the lowest estimate, Calhoun County furnished about 1800 troops. The Hon. R.N. Provine, of Cole's Creek, collected the names of the living veterans of Calhoun County during the years 1903-1904.
