"The extent and details of the CSMC's service in the First and Second Great Wars are largely unknown. However, it can be assumed that with the collapse of the Confederate States and the surrender of its military in 1944, the Confederate Marines ceased to exist."

There's both "we don't know" and "we can assume". I don't see much that's salvageable in this addition. TR (talk) 16:47, October 18, 2017 (UTC)

Well, take those out and all we have is what one Marine did. The article doesn't even say he was fighting as the Corps' champion. Might as well delete, then. Turtle Fan (talk) 22:42, October 18, 2017 (UTC)
I'm hesitant to delete, simply because we do know that the CSMC existed, and if we delete, someone will come along and restore some version of it. Jonathan has created a lit comm, which I'm not keen on, but this might be one of those crappy articles that we let stand simply because it's the least crappy option.

Well Jonathan converted the added paragraph by Anonymous to a Lit. Comm. rather than create it as a whole. This does take it out of in-history in a more acceptable manner. My concern is that this took place before blacks were allowed to serve in the Confederate military. As I recall, Commodus was a laborer attached to Bartlett's division(?) while it was ambiguous what Lysis' position with the Marines was. I'm going to change both to laborers attached to their respective units rather than actual fighting men like soldier or marine. ML4E (talk)
The lit comm might make it bearable, just barely, to keep the article, but the reference to the boxing match really should go. It has nothing to do with the Corps. Lyaia has an article, that's where it belongs.
I seem to remember Kimball once saying that the CSMC was the CSN's concession to the reality that warfare on land was occasionally necessary? Turtle Fan (talk) 06:49, October 20, 2017 (UTC)
