The 29th Mississippi Infantry Regiment

This website is dedicated the brave soldiers of the 29th Mississippi Infantry Regiment which was organized April 11th, 1862. The field consolidation with the 30th Infantry Regiment was from October 1863 to December 1863. Field consolidation with the 30th and 34th Infantry Regiments was from December 1863 to May 1864, and consolidation with the 30th again from May 1864 to April 9th, 1865. On April 9th, 1865 the 29th Mississippi Infantry was consolidated with the 24th, 27th, 30th, and 34th Mississippi Infantry in Smithfield, North Carolina and designated as the 24th Mississippi Infantry Regiment.

The purpose of this website is to help educate the researcher about the 29th Mississippi Infantry Regiment and any associated units. It is beneficial in helping the student learn more about their specific battles and possibly help any descendants of these brave men track down their ancestor. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Please be advised that I will help anyone and answer any general questions, but if you are looking for specific war records, I have to charge a nominal fee. The cost of driving, printing the microfilm and mailing can take time. However, by allowing me to do this for you keeps this website going and I will send back to you more than most can accomplish on their own.

The research pages consist and will consist as the site grows of how to find your Civil War ancestor, Confedederate flag facts for those involved in the flag flying controversy. This site is an evolving process and in time I hope that it can be the most accurate and detailed site on this outfit. If you have any added information the unit or associated units, please feel free to contact me at your convienence.


This site is dedicated to my Grandmother's Grandfather, Robert C. Blakely of the 29th Miss. Co. G - "Walthall's Rebels". He was wounded and captured yet he never gave up nor surrendered.
