dec Stanford's Battery Christmas Party
January 13, 1863
By order of the Commander of Stanford’s Mississippi Light Artillery,
Attention all able body men of military age, the Governor of the Great State of Mississippi has authorized the additional recruitment of all interested men, from Illinois and its nearby states, to fill out the ranks of Stanford’s Mississippi Light Artillery.
The ongoing campaign in the states of Illinois and Indiana by Confederate armies has reduced the batteries numbers from its original strength and is now in need of replacements. All interested men should contact the battery and make yourself available to defend the cause.
The Battery is in need of 10 men to fill out the ranks of the 4th gun crew that was lost in battle this past year.
Once contact is made with the recruitment officer for Stanford’s Battery, he will determine if you meet the requirements to man a position in the gun crew.
Thomas Jefferson Stanford
Commander, Miss Lgt Arty
