The Corps is in Period Dress, posts flags, and fires a rifle salutes at special events, funerals, and Confederate Iron Cross Ceremonies. Call to schedule. Members may be seen wearing a custom medal produced exclusively for the Trans-Mississippi Old Guard or its replacement seen at right. Trans-Mississippi is the designation for Confederate military operations west of the Mississippi. The Old Guard, an elite unit guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, is proud to honor all American service members. The Texas Star is the focal point and represents Texas’ participation and contributions during The Second American Revolution. It is designed with the point down to resemble the Congressional Medal of Honor. Smaller Stars in the wreath personify heroes and Trans-Mississippi War Department Officers.* The cross appropriately symbolizes the Christian traditions maintained by the Southern People. The red ribbon background signifies The Southern Cross of Honor and the bloodshed by our citizen-soldier ancestors who fought for the Confederacy and personified the best qualities of America. This medal exemplifies and promotes the overall image of preserving freedom and liberty and is worn with pride by members and supporters of the Trans-Mississippi Old Guard.* Officers memorialized by the 10 small stars: Gen. Robert E. Lee (in Texas 2-8-1861); Gen. John Bell Hood; Gen. John Bankhead Magruder; Gen. Edmund Kirby Smith; Col. John S. (RIP) Ford; Col. Benjamin McCulloch; Lt. Col. John B. Baylor; Brig. Gen. Henry H. Sibley; Gen. Earl Van Dorn; Maj. Alfred M. Hobby.
