Deciding I need to write my 2nd Mississippi Regimental History like you would when you start to "eat an elephant...one bite at a time," I am pleased to announce my self-published FREE PDF e-book entitled "The Second Mississippi Infantry Regiment: An Introduction to the Full Annotated Roster." It has some 450 pages and includes information on all the 1,888 members of the 2nd Mississippi (of which I am aware at any rate) as well as some additional statistical introductory material. I hope this to be the first in several volumes on the history of this hard-fighting regiment.

Besides being the self-published author of Civil War books, I am the great-grandson of Private Thomas Benton Weatherington, one of the 1,888 Confederate soldiers from northeast Mississippi that served in the 2nd Mississippi Infantry Regiment in Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. A lifelong Civil War buff, I grew up near the Shiloh battlefield in West Tennessee. I received my MA in Civil War Studies from American Military University. I also hold degrees in Electrical Engineering and an MBA which I draw upon to help shape my own unique approach to researching and writing Civil War history. As former president and co-founder of InfoConcepts, Inc., I was the co-developer of the American Civil War Regimental Information System and Epic Battles of the American Civil War software. I developed and maintained the 2nd Mississippi Infantry Regiment website from 2002 until 2015 and now maintain the 2nd Mississippi Facebook page. I am also writing a regimental history to be released in the near future. I am a retired Air Force officer and now reside in Huntsville, Alabama.
