27th Regiment Mississippi Infantry, CSA
"An infant nation struggling for existence, and just now fairly disengaging itself
from the oppressor's grasp, pauses in the strife to drop a sympathetic tear over the
grave of its gallant dead, ... will her free sons and daughters cherish and revere the
names and memories of those who fell on the bloody plains of Murfreesboro."
J. Patton Anderson, Brig. Gen., 1863
The 27th Regiment Mississippi Infantry was organized in September through December 1861
from independant units from the Counties of Oktibbeha, Leake, Covington, Jasper and
Simpson in Mississippi while these units were stationed in Pennsacola. It underwent
several field consolidations with various other Mississippi units. The first was with
the 24th Regiment Mississippi Infantry from October 1863 through August 1864. Another
was with the 24th and the 34th Regiments Mississippi Infantry Regiments from
September 1864 through April 9, 1864. And finally with the 24th, the 29th, the 30th
and the 34th Regiments Mississippi Infantry from April 9, 1864 until the unit was
surrendered on April 26, 1865.
This is the story of that unit...
