Brief History

"Organized October 13, 1862; consolidated February 25, 1863 with Douglass's Battalion and three other companies to form the 11th Tennessee Cavalry Regiment." [1]

"Units of the Confederate States Army" by Joseph H. Crute, Jr. contains no history for this unit. [2]

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.

Holman's Battalion ( Captain J. T. Martin) - many men from Williamson County. Organized at Columbia August, 1862.
