          This site is dedicated to the preservation of the history of the Second Mississippi Infantry Regiment and to the memory of the men who served under its banner during our American Civil War. On a more personal note, this site is also dedicated to the memory of my great-grandfather, Private Thomas Benton Weatherington, and his older brother, Private George W. Weatherington, both of Company H.

"There is no other legend quite like the legend of the Confederate fighting man. He reached the end of his haunted road long ago. He fought for a star-crossed cause and in the end he was beaten, but as he carried his slashed red battle flag into the dusky twilight of the Lost Cause he marched straight into a legend that will live as long as the American people care to remember anything about the American past." - Bruce Catton
