      My great,great grandfather Rufus Woods was in the 17th Mississippi Company A. He enlisted as a corporal. Not a private.

      My great great grand uncle Thomas Jefferson Lockhart enlisted in the 17th Mississippi Company F. I know he survived the war . He was a 2nd Lt. in Company F which was Samuel Benton Relief Rifle . I was looking for information to find out if he was at Gettysburg and Petersburg.
      Any help would be appreciated.

      While I always like to try to help, genealogy is not my area of expertise or interest. I would suggest signing up at http://www.fold3.com and looking for your ancestors’ records in the Confederate Compiled Service Records (CSRs). That should give you all of the information available on his role in the war.
