ISAAC WAS A MEMBER OF THE SECOND REGT. OF THE MISS. INFANTRY (QUINN'S STATE TROOPS); ALSO KNOWN AS THE 1ST INFANTRY BATTALION MINUTE MEN 13TH INFANTRY BATTALION, C.S.A. AND WAS A PRIVATE-SRGT., COMPANY #1, 1861-1863. THE FIRST COMMANDER WAS MAJOR W.B. HARPER. ASSIGNMENT: 4TH MILITARY DISTRICT, DEPT. OF MS AND EAST LA (JAN - MAY, 1863) Nothing has been found in either official or unofficial sources to prove that the First Mississippi "Minute Men" Infantry ever took part in any engagement of any kind during its career.
A part of its name was the term "State Troops," which leads one to believe that this was some type of Militia unit or "Home Guard" comprised of men too old or infirm to perform in a regular combat unit. Although it was a regiment, that is, it contained ten companies, it was a small organization, never numbering more than 250 officers and enlisted men.
In August, 1862 the regiment was encamped at Camp Bruce in Warren County; and in September, 1862 it was at Camp Milldale. After forming at Jackson, the state capitol, in mid-May, 1863, the regiment marched to Yazoo City, about 40 miles to the northwest. There it assisted in guarding the approaches to that place while Union forces under Grant and Sherman were keeping Vicksburg under siege. Shortly before the regiment's term of service expired it was moved to Brandon, in Rankin County. An unofficial report states that the unit was assigned the task of attempting to gather up individuals who had been cut off or deserted from their commands during the Union operations against Vicksburg and Jackson, and assisting them to rejoin their units.
The First Mississippi Minute Men Infantry was officially released from service prior to November 1, 1863. At least some of its members saw subsequent service in other Mississippi State organizations.
Issac was listed as AWOL from the Confederacy and family assumed it was because he hooked up with someone along the way.
HE JOINED THE METHODIST CHURCH IN 1860. HE WAS A MEMBER OF THE MASONIC LODGE, 1852-1909.
