Franklin County Mississippi Civil War Project

"In Dixie's Land We Took Our Stand"

On the following pages you will find information on the Men and Companies from Franklin County, MS who fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War. 

Mississippi suffered the largest percentage dead of any Confederate State in the Civil War. 78,000 Mississippians entered the Confederate military. By the end of the war, 59,000 of the 78,000 were either dead or wounded.  I think it is safe to say almost every able-bodied man in Franklin County served in some capacity.

 

The Units

These member lists are from the Civil War Soldiers & Sailors System.  There may have been more members  on the muster rolls at different times during the war.  If your ancestor was in one of these units and is not listed, please let me know and I will be happy to add their information.
