43rd Mississippi Infantry, Co. K, Page 2

 "Kemper Fencibles"

The 43rd Regiment, Mississippi Infantry Volunteers, CSA, was also known as "Mooreís Regiment," "Harrisonís Regiment," "the Camel Regiment," and "the Bloody Forty-third."

Organized 15 May 1862. The 43rd Mississippi Infantry saw service at Iuka, fought at 2nd Corinth, resisted Grantís Central Mississippi Railroad Campaign, repulsed Sherman at 2nd Chickasaw Bayou, served in Deer Creek Expedition (Poundís detachment), nobly endured the Siege of Vicksburg, fought at the Siege of Jackson (Poundís detachment), campaigned at Chickamauga (Poundís detachment), helped turn back Sooy Smithís Meridian Expedition, fought in the 100 Dayís Battles all the way from Resaca to Atlanta, endured the Siege of Atlanta, skirmished at Decatur, made a famous charge on Franklinís bloody fields of glory, was shattered at Nashville, but, undaunted, rose from the ashes to fight again at Kinston and, finally, took part in the last great Confederate charge at Bentonville.

The pages you now hold bear the hallowed names of the noble, courageous Sons of the South who did these mighty deeds of valor. Cherish their memory. Laud their bravery. Celebrate their Heritage of Honor.

"Though men deserve, they may not win success; the brave will honor the brave, vanquished nonetheless."
