20548[civilwarwest] Confederate enlisted ranks.
- Nov 7, 1999My great grandfather says he was the orderly sergant for the 23d
Mississippi Infantry Regiment. I have searched just about everywhere I
could in hopes of finding some shred of information that would
substantiate my great grandfathers claim. Failing that, I started
loking for some description of the rank. I have found that from Lt. on
down there were 1st., 2nd., 3d., and 4th everything...even privates!
Can you imagine being a 4th private? I started out as an E-1 (third
private) and knew dogs who were better off than me.
All joking aside, can anyone provide me with any infromaton regarding
the rank of orderly sergant, and how it fit into the general structure
of regimental organization?
