I am preparing a new page for the MSGenWeb web site for Lauderdale County, Mississippi. It is well known that there were at least three Confederate Hospitals in the area. In examining a preprinted discharge issued for medical reasons to an individual soldier being discharged from the hospital at Marion, Ms, I noticed that the printed heading of the document read "General Hospital 'Okolona'" even though the actual hospital was listed as Marion, MS. Does anyone have any insight as to why this document may have been printed in this manner.
The MSGenWeb site is located at: http://www.rootsweb.com/~mslaude2/ Having recently published a page for the Lauderdale Springs Confederate Cemetery, after Marion, I plan to document the Way and Yandell Hospital burials in Meridian at Rosehill.
Any information or references you may wish to suggest will be appreciated.
