1st Brigade Minute Men

Contributed by Dan Edwards

See Copyright Information below

The Minute Men companies resulted from an executive order of May 1862 whereby each county was required to furnish a specific number of companies taken from existing militia companies. The two Holmes County companies were assigned assigned to the Third Minute Men Regiment which was organized on 7 August 1862 and stationed in Grenada under the command of Colonel W.J. Owens. The troops were not mustered into the Confederate States service, but were subject to the orders of Confederate officers. The regiment was disbanded in April, 1863. Captain Kyle of G company and some of his men joined the newly formed Gholson's Cavalry Brigade. He commanded A Company of Colonel John McGuirk's 3rd regiment.
