The Third Battalion Mississippi Infantry and the 45th Mississippi Regiment: A Civil War History

Front Cover
McFarland, Incorporated, Publishers, Mar 23, 2009 - History - 444 pages
This is an accounting of the experiences of the soldiers of Hardcastle's 3rd Battalion Mississippi Infantry from enlistment to the end of the war. It includes their mid-war incarnation as the 45th Mississippi Regiment and the role they played in Cleburne's fabled division during almost every major engagement of the Army of Tennessee. Told as much as possible from the point of view of the soldier, the book shows what motivated the original volunteers to join and continue fighting to the end.
