Brief History

The 23rd Regiment, New York Cavalry was organized, January to May, 1863.  The regiment mustered out at Raleigh, N. C., July 22, 1865[1]

For more information on the history of this unit, see:


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.


Company A - principally recruited in Erie County, Niagara County, Cayuga County and Genesee County.

Company B - principally recruited in New York City.
