My Great-Grandfather, George E. Dorrill, was in Company E of the 5th Mississippi at Franklin, Tennessee. It was also in General Mark Perin Lowery’s Brigade.
He was known as “the Fighting Preacher. After the war, he founded Blue Mountain College for females, at Ripley. He was also president of the Mississippi Baptist Convention for ten years.
There are no biographies of General Lowery, but Dr. Andy Kennedy did his Doctors Disertation on General Lowery at Mississippi State in the 1970s.
