Brief History

19th Cavalry Battalion was formed in January, 1865, by consolidating five independent cavalry companies. Surrendered with the Army of Tennessee [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.
