Brief History

The 15th Cavalry Battalion was organized during the winter of 1862-1863. The unit served in the District of Western Louisiana but was soon broken up. Some of the men served in Harrison's 3rd Louisiana Cavalry Regiment.[1]

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.
