James K Polk Tims - Private   
It was popular for babies to be named for presidents at the time during America's first century. Naturally many of the veterans of military age in the Confederate States Armed Forces shared names like John Q Adams or John Tyler. President Polk was highly regarded in the South and as it was in Choctaw County Alabama where my great great grandfather was from.
He and his two brothers and other close relatives served together in the Enterprise Tigers, Company D of the 37th Mississippi. The three brothers were captured at the battle of Nashville, December 16, 1864. They are my bravest in my heritage.

John B Tims - Private   
Born in 1847 John B Tims is the youngest of the three sons John and Jane Creag Knight Tims gave to the defense of Alabama and the Confederate States.
Though brother William Jackson was killed in cold blood in the cold Camp Douglas, James and John survived by miracle. Following the war they'd seen enough of 'reconstruction' in Alabama and John and James moved their families to East Texas. Today their line of the Tims name continues on in Texas. Their descendents remember the service of John, William, and James Tims and we will never forget why it is we are proud to remember.

William Jackson Tims - Private   
Was born and raised in Choctaw County, Alabama yet served with volunteers out of Mississippi, the Enterprise Tigers (or Company D 37th MISS). Brothers John and James Tims also from Alabama served in same company. The three survived the battle of Franklin only to be captured weeks later in General Hood's defeat at Nashville. The brothers boarded a train packed and rolling toward a dark place in American history, Camp Douglas.
Barely a month before the end of the War Between the Confederate and United States William died from pneumonia. (An easy fate considering the Alabamian's Chicago winter exposure, malnutrition, and cruel interests of the camp commandant, Colonel Sweet. He was buried in the largest mass grave in North America, among six thousand other Southerns buried at Confederate Mound in South Chicago. Only his spirit would come home to wife Martha Mae.

James A Satterfield - Private   
James A. Satterfield enlisted in the Civil War 31 Mar 1862 at Jasper Co., MS, in the 'Jasper Guards', later to become the 37th MS Infantry Regiment, Company K.

He died, probably of disease, at Camp Enterprise, MS 10 Dec 1863, as a prisoner of war, waiting to be exchanged.

When Vicksburg surrendered on the 4th, the paroles started on the 9th. I do not know what he was still in Camp Enterprise in Dec...guessing that he had a long illness or severe wound.
