Would records of the Confederate Army of the Mississippi reside in the state of Mississippi?
yes they should but also should have something in the library of congress for complete records. been doing some search when I have down time at work. This is very interesting.

Close-up of the name:

What I see is a large, single letter on the left; it has a beginning hook, followed by a vertical loop (possibly a second loop after; they are both above the ink smear); two to three more letters followed by the "T" (that letter is definite); the remaining letters (possibly two) trail-off at the end. The word cannot end in "L" or a similar tall letter. It has to end in a letter that is shorter, and naturally trails when writing in script.

I'm also inferring that this officer is attached in some way to the Confederate Mississippi Department, as a cavalry officer.

My guess is that he's Major General John A. Wharton.
