In Response To: Roster-Co. F- 7th MS. Infantry ()

Mary Jo,

If Jamie can't get you a copy of the roster that has Pvt. William Green listed, I would be glad to provide you with a copy of my listing of his name as it is included in my book on the 7th Miss. "Lest We Forget-The Immortal Seventh Mississippi" I call the roster the "Lest We Forget Roster". It is a compilation of the roster produced by the MDAH by Dunbar Rowland, The William Hadskey Roster, The Calvin Phillips research using the individual records on all men in the 7th Miss. and other resources to numerous to name.

I would welcome the opportunity to gain additional information about Private Green and his war time experiences and about his family.

One thing we do know is that after the battle of Munfordville, KY in September 1862, boys who were under age were allowed to leave the service. After that any that joined under age were truly brave and dedicated young men.

Obviously, young private William Green had a choice and he stood to the call. I am saddened by his loss, but am glad that there is still someone who remembers him and wants to keep his name remembered.

That's why we are writing the book. If we continue to say their name and tell their story, they will be "the immortal seventh".

Please send any and all information you have on Private Green and we will find a way to add it to the regimental history.
