Brief History

Under orders of the War Department of June 17, 1865 the 10th and 24th Regiments of Calvary were consolidated and designated as above. The consolidation took place July 10, 1865, company to company, and the new regiment was commanded by Col. Matthew H. Avery, of the 10th Cavalry. This regiment was mustered out July 19, 1865[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.

The companies in this regiment were principally organized in New York City.
