Casuality Report of the 34th Miss. at Perryville, Ky.

Ashland, Mississippi



Battle of  Perryville, KY

We return thanks to our friend Billie Mason for the following list of the killed and wounded of the 34th Mississippi regiment; Confederate Infanty, in that fearful conflict at Perryville, Ky., in the 8th of October, 1862. The list was made out by Maj. A. T. Mason a few days after the battle; and has been in his possession ever since.

The 34th was originally known as the 37th, but many of the survivors of that grand old regiment, who live in this county, have asked us to make the correction, which we do with above explanation. With this exception the report is given as written by Maj. Mason:
