Capture of Members of
the 46th Mississippi Regiment
at Fort Blakely, Alabama, April 1865

In transcribing the cards, there is a conflict as to when the men of the unit were captured at Fort Blakely. One card would indicate April 1 and another would state April 2, 1865. Most were transferred to Ship Island prison and then on to Vicksburg. All were privates unless otherwise noted.
