Michael Hopkins posted a topic in Army of the MississippiI have been told that there is a list of KIA confederates from Louisiana published in the New Orleans newspaper in late April 1862. Has anyone an interest in this? My interest is in WIA/KIA of the 17th. Louisiana.
Hi everyone. My name is Michael B. Hopkins and I live in Murfreesboro TN. I am an amateur historian and have been all my life. As a child I heard about my GGgrandfather who had fought at Vicksburg and even had his original surrender papers in our family. His unit the 17th. Louisiana fought at Shiloh and thus my interest in this site. Happy to be here and hope to learn a lot about this important battle.
