Mississippi seceded from the Union even before there was a Confederacy. In fact, for the first month of their independence, the state became the Republic of Mississippi. By the time hostilities ended, approximately 100,000 Magnolia State men had fought in the War Between the States and several significant battles were fought on its soil. Michael Ballard's authoritative new history lays out the changing picture of the Civil War in Mississippi, including the battles of Corinth, Jackson and Vicksburg. A fascinating resource for any history buff, local or national.
