About Gov. William Malcomb Guy, CSA

William Malcolm Guy, a son of William R. Guy and Jane Aldridge, his wife, was born at Boggy Depot, Chickasaw Nation, on February 4, 1845. After the death of his father, he lived at the home of his uncle, Cyrus Harris and attended the tribal schools until the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861 when he enlisted as a private in Company F in the 17th Mississippi Regiment for service in the Confederate army, on April 29, 1861, at North Mount Pleasant. Col. Winfield S. Featherstone commanded the regiment which was assigned to the Barkdale Brigade and attached to Longstreet's Division.1 His military career was most remarkable. He was in the battle of Bull Run and was severely wounded in the left shoulder and head during the second day at Gettysburg where he was taken a prisoner and held as such for a brief time, being subsequently exchanged at City Point, Virginia. He participated in the Seven Days battles near Richmond, the battles of Harpers Ferry and Antietam and the two engagements at Fredericksburg. He was with the army of General Lee at the time of the surrender at Appomattox. His record as a soldier, faithfully performed, has few equals.

Upon the conclusion of the war, he returned to Mississippi and entered Marshall Institute, at Early Grove, where he resumed his education under the tutilage of his old army captain, D. W. Steager and where he remained for two years. He rejoined his uncle Cyrus Harris at Mill Creek, Chickasaw Nation in 1868 and assisted his uncle in the stock business.
