"Old Douglas" the Dromedary camel that served with Company A of the 43rd Mississippi Infantry Regiment. Douglas became the regimental mascot and the 43rd became known as the Camel Regiment. He saw action at Iuka, Corinth, and was killed during the Siege of Vicksburg, when Federal snipers targeted and killed him for sport. In response, Confederate sniper teams hunted down and killed the responsible Federal sniper, along with several others operating against the 43rd.
