In March and April, 1862, Mississippi leaders heeded the additional "call to arms" and marshalled new units of volunteers to fight for the Confederacy.

The vast majority of these Mississippi volunteers were farmers. Rarely traveling far from their fields, going to war would prove to be an exciting experience for them. Ranging from beardless boys to venerable greybeards, the majority of the 33rd Mississippi Infantry were in their 20's and 30's. Educated and uneducated, rich and poor, rural and urban, all were ready to fight to protect their families and homes from invasion, and to defend Mississippi's sovereignty.

This is the story of the nearly 1,400 men whose names and records that I have found associated with the 33rd Mississippi Infantry.
