Mississippians from General Nathaniel Harris’s Brigade were some of the regiments thrown into the Confederate defense of the Bloody Angle on May 12, 1864. Many of those who fell in the fighting were buried behind the lines and in the fields near the Neil McCoull House. Two years later, their graves remained, marked by simple wood headboards. Visible in photo are the graves of men from the 16th Mississippi Infantry: Sergeants Stephen W. Dampeer and J.B. Summer; Privates Samuel C. Bakins, T.K. Curry, S.A. Shirley and T. White. These men now rest in the Spotsylvania Confederate Cemetery.' You may see these photos of markers at National Park Service website.
