Mississippi contracted with Magee & Kneass in New Orleans to produce accoutrements for its troops, and photos of members of the 6th Mississippi show the "forked tongue" belt often associated with the firm.  One photo of a member of Company I shows a white buff version of the Magee & Kneass belt, which will be reproduced by Merrick's Custom Leather using real buff leather and an excellent Hanover Brass buckle.  Buff leather and Hanover Brass hardware is spendy, but it will make for a real neat belt.
