The Minute Men of Attala

About 135 names are listed here for the Minute Men of Company I (D Company before the regiment’s 1862 reorganization) of Attala County, posted by David Frazier at Frazier Genealogy. All are attributed to author James H. Wallace who wrote a 1916 history of the county.

Jess McLean’s book, however, numbers 150 Minute Men. And H. Grady Howell Jr.’s muster listing has 157 names, with beginning and ending ranks for each. Howell’s listings are often described as definitive and McLean lists him as a source.

Of the three lists, however, only McLean’s goes into some detail about each man from their muster rolls in the National Archives and family and other sources he found.
