The War for Southern Independence:
C (Carroll Guards)
Attached is a listing of casulties suffered by the 20th
Mississippi infantry at Ft. Donelson, TN in February 1862.
The report was written by Major W. M. Brown, commanding the
regiment. The regiment was composed of men from
Winston, Boliver, Monroe, Carroll, Noxubee, Harrison,
Scott, Jasper and Attala Counties in Mississippi. I hope
this is of use.
