"Five companies of volunteers, averaging one hundred men, from Mississippi, reached Lynchburg yesterday morning - Tishomingo Rifles, Capt. Reynolds; the Town Creek Rifles, Capt. W. C. Bromley; the Magnolia Rifles, Capt. Davis; the Beck Rifles, Capt. W. D. Beck; and the Cherry Creek Rifles."

The Richmond Daily Dispatch, 10 May, 1861 - Arrival of Mississippi troops

"Five more companies from Mississippi - the O'Connor Rilles, Coonawa Rifles, Calhoun Rifles, Iuka Rifles, and the Pontotoc Minute Men," - about five hundred strong - arrived in this city yesterday, and, together with the companies which arrived Wednesday, composed the Second Regiment of Mississippi."

The Richmond Daily Dispatch, 11 May, 1861 - Arrival of more Mississippi troops

"The New York Times of 2 August, 1861, stated that the 2nd Mississippi Infantry, commanded by Col William C. Faulkner, were uniformed exactly like one of the Minnesota regiments, occasioning a mistake in the late battle at First Manassas on 21 July. As the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry wore red shirts at First Manassas, this would indicate that by the time they reached Virginia the 2nd Mississippi were still wearing the red flannel shirts prescribed for fatigue by the Military Board in March."
