AHGP Mississippi Civil War

Mississippi Soldiers and Sailors

Union and Confederate
According to the NPS Civil War Soldiers and Sailors summary, there were 903 persons serving the Union from Mississippi. 173,935 persons serving the Confederacy from Mississippi. And 887 Union African Americans or Colored Sailors from Mississippi. It has not been clarified IF the number of Colored Union Sailors from Mississippi is included in the number of persons serving the Union from Mississippi. Therefore, the total number of Union troops could possibly be increased to 1,710 in Total Union Mississippi Troops. OR the number of Union Troops given at 903 Total included the 887 Colored Union Sailors?
