Dixie Boys    
  This site contains info on Mississippi units that fought in the Civil War.  The name "Dixie Boys" was taken from the name of Company K, of the 30th Mississippi Infantry Regiment.   This website contains some information on regimentss from Mississipppi as well as battles and armies in the Western Theater, which includes Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia.
    The Mississippi Unit Histories menu contain detailed historical info on 22nd and 30th Mississippi Infantry and 5th Mississippi Cavalry Regiments, including partial rosters.  The Organization Tables contains an outline of regiments and commanders for different Confederate Armies.   I've added a new organizational table of the Army of Mississippi at Shiloh and have added my own detail information on many of the leaders and regiments.  It includes detailed information before and after the battle, such as promotions, wounds or post war career.  The Death Records includes list of battle casualties and burial rosters of soldiers that I have found during my geneology research.
