The Confederate dead buried in the Vicksburg Cemetery.

Notes Furnished by Capt. William T. Rigby.
Undertaker J. Q. Arnold buried 1,593 soldiers (nearly all Confederate), from February 15, 1862, to July 4, 1863, as shown by his record book.

Of these, Captain Rigby has made notes of the following, because many of the names furnish information to him, and others he wishes to look up data concerning, and many of which belong to commands which will add materially to his records. They are as follows:
