MISSISSIPPI'S 
CONFEDERATE GENERALS
Mississippi contributed a number of men who reached the rank of General in the Confederate Army.  We honor the men who attained that rank and were either born in Mississippi or who first joined the Confederate Services through a Mississippi unit.  

Their efforts, valor, and steadfast devotion to the cause will not be forgotten.  
"LEST WE FORGET, LEST WE FORGET"
Brigadier General Joseph Robert Davis
