Civil War Units

Alternate Designations Of Organizations of Mississippi CSA Organizations

This list was given to us By Bill Ward. He has gleaned it from different publications and other sources.

If you are aware of other units we do not have here we would appreciate it if you would send those to us to be included in this list.

03-16-1999, this information was sent to us by Bill Garner, Great Grandson of Gideon G. Garner of the 43rd MS. My g.grand father was a member of the forty-third Mississippi Infantry. This unit was known by the following alternate designation derived from the name of its commanding officer. The names used by this regiment were
James O. Banks' Infantry
Richard W. Leigh's Infantry
William H. Moore's "
Richard Harrison's "
Columbus Sykes' "
Company "K " were nicknamed the Kemper Fencibles
Company "L" were nicked named the Gholson Rebels
The 43rd was organized during the spring of 1862.
Let me know if I can be any help and thank you for the good job you have done!
