Pike County War of 1812 Unit

Men from Pike and Marion counties served in the 13th Regiment Mississippi Militia, under Col. Nixon. The unit is often referred to as "Nixon's Regiment". A brief history of the unit and the battles in which it fought can be found in Military History of Mississippi 1803-1898 by Dunbar Rowland (Spartanburg, South Carolina, The Reprint Company, 1988.) on pages 6-8. A roster of the unit is given in Source Records From Pike County, Mississippi 1798-1910 by Luke Ward Conerly and E. Russ Williams, Jr. (Greenville, South Carolina, Southern Historical Press, Inc., 1978.) on pages 1-3 of Part II.

The National Archives and Records Administration has filmed an Index to Compiled Service Records of Volunteer Soldiers Who Served During The War of 1812 (Microcopy M602, Rolls 1 through 234) and a Compiled Service Records of Volunteer Soldiers Who Served During the War of 1812 in Organizations From the Territory of Mississippi (Microcopy M678, Rolls 1 through 22. Nixon's Regiment is on Rolls 17 through 20.) These film series are widely available at state libraries and archives and larger genealogical libraries.


Pike County Confederate Units

Listed in the table below are the units raised from Pike County for service in the Confederate States Army, Mississippi State Troops or Pike County Home Guard. The information was extracted from two sources:

Military History of Mississippi 1803-1898 by Dunbar Rowland. (Spartanburg, South Carolina, The Reprint Company, 1988.) This book lists the companies within each regiment, the officers of the regiment and company, and gives a brief history of the battles in which the regiment fought and also names some of the regiment's casualties.

Source Records From Pike County, Mississippi 1798-1910 by Luke Ward Conerly and E. Russ Williams, Jr.. (Greenville, South Carolina, Southern Historical Press, Inc., 1978.) Rosters of the companies are given in this book and in some instances a brief history of the particular company is also given. The page numbers given are from Part I of the book.

The National Archives and Records Administration has filmed a Consolidated Index to Compiled Service Records of Confederate Soldiers (Microcopy M253, Rolls 1 through 535) and an Index to Compiled Service Records of Confederate Soldiers Who Served in Organizations From the State of Mississippi (Microcopy M232, Rolls 1 through 45.) These film series are widely available at state libraries and archives and larger genealogical libraries.

Capsule histories of the units below are posted on the Mississippi Sons of Confederate Veterans webpage in the Mississippi History section of the page.
