The Mississippi in the Civil War Message Board


The Mississippi Archives holds a large, but fragile order book for the "Tilghman’s Brigade-Baldwin’s-Sears" for October 17, 1862 to February 28, 1865. Series 397
Order book (32 x 10 cm.) Order book of communications from the western theatre,1862-1865.

It can not be photo copied, and can only be viewed in their reading room. All of my research with MDAH, thus far, has been done by ordering photocopies.

I would surely like to hear from anyone who may have further notes and/or information about the contents of this book covering a brief time period of time. Specifically, information from the first two month [or so] period of the book.
