Louisiana Battery, Capt. Charles E. Fenner.

Although previously fully discussed, this is the "Fenner" in whose home in New Orleans, LA that Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America, died.

He is also the Fenner of the original law firm which ultimately became Phelps/Dunbar/Marks/Claverie/& Sims, as well as being the father of such noted individuals as the "Fenner" of Merrill Lynch association and the "Fenner" who defended Tulane University against segregation.

38th Alabama, Capt. Benjamin Lane Posey.

Formation & First Parade

In December 1856, six New Orleans businessmen, formerly of Mobile, Alabama gathered at a club room above the now-defunct Gem Restaurant in New Orleans' French Quarter to organize a secret society observe Mardi Gras in a less crude fashion.[1] The inspiration for the name came from John Milton's Lord of Misrule in his masque Comus. Part of the inspiration for the parade was a Carnival group in Mobile, Alabama called the Cowbellion de Rakin Society.

Early Affiliation with Pickwick Club

Membership in Comus was historically associated with membership in the private Pickwick Club and for a time the two organizations were one. The two organizations severed all official ties in 1884. In modern times, the membership is not identical but it is believed that they have common members.

Carnival Secrecy & Exclusivity

Comus has jealously guarded the identities of its membership and the privacy of its activities (other than its parade), perhaps even more than other Carnival organizations that subscribe to the traditional code of Carnival secrecy. Carnival legend has it that admittance to the Mistick Krewe's ball was so highly sought-after that a group of uninvited ladies formed a flying wedge and attempted to force their way into the Comus ball. In other years, uninvited persons have tried to beg, buy or steal invitations to the Comus ball.[1] Even after the ball is over, Comus invitations are prized by collectors, as they are both uncommonly beautiful and rare.

The Meeting of the Courts

The Mistick Krewe of Comus also originated another Carnival tradition: the so-called Meeting of the Courts. The practice originated in 1892, when Rex (the King of Carnival) and his Queen paid a formal visit to the throne of Comus.[

In 1991 the New Orleans city council passed an ordinance that required social organizations, including Mardi Gras Krewes, to certify publicly that they did not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation, in order to obtain parade permits and other public licensure. In effect, the ordinance required these, and other, private social groups to abandon their traditional code of secrecy and identify their members for the city's Human Relations Commission. The Comus organization (along with Momus, another 19th century Krewe) withdrew from parading rather than identify its membership.

Comus: Founded in 1857, the Krewe of Comus (from the Greek komos, meaning "revelers"), has the distinction of having originally been the oldest parading Krewe and was initially named "The Mystick Krewe of Comus." Founded by six men (all Protestant white Americans) who had moved to New Orleans from Mobile, Alabama, they formed a secret society along with thirteen New Orleanians and mounted a tableau ball for 3,000 people at the Gaiety Theatre. Comus' first parade included two floats lighted by "flambeaux." In keeping with the early Masonic traditions of secrecy, the member of Comus never revealed the name of their King. The most discriminatory of the old-liners, it was not until relatively recent times that they would admit Catholics to their ranks. This Krewe, however, no longer participates in the Parades. In 1992, when New Orleans Councilwoman Dorothy Mae Taylor drafted an anti-discrimination ordinance that prohibited racial discrimination among the Krewes, Comus refused to sign the ordinance and withdrew from the Parade schedule. Some members of Comus have replaced their Carnival night Parade with a procession from Antoine's Restaurant to their ball at the Municipal Auditorium. The revelers ring cowbells in honor of the group which inspired them, the Cowbellion de Rankin Society of Mobile, Alabama. The Krewe's motto is: "Sic Volo, Sic Jubeo" ("As I Will It, There Will Be Joy"). The decision to withdraw from the Parade schedule was also adopted by Momus and Proteus (the second oldest Krewe which recanted several years later and signed the ordinance).

The first queen of Comus was Mildred Lee, daughter of Confederate general Robert E. Lee, whose exploits the city still venerates with a monument at Lee Circle.

Winnie. Winnie was often referred to as the "Daughter of the Confederacy," as she was born during the Civil War. She was a frequent visitor to New Orleans and reigned as Queen of Comus, a prominent Mardi Gras organization, in 1898.

Well, with that background, I don't suppose that there were any "Yankee's" invited to become members of COMUS!
