=== Brief History ===
This Unit completed its organization at Winchester, Virginia, in July 1861.&nbsp; Unlike most regiments, the 1st contained twelve companies.&nbsp; After taking part in the Battle of First Manassas, the unit was brigaded under Generals J. E. B Stuart, F. Lee, Wickham, and Munford. The cavalry cut through the Federal lines at Appomattox and later disbanded. Only 1 man from this unit was present at the surrender. The field officers were Colonels R. Welby Carter, James H. Drake, William E. Jones, Fitzhugh Lee, William A. Morgan, and James E. B. Stuart; Lieutenant Colonels L. Tiernan Brien and Charles R. Irving; and Major Robert Swan. <ref>National Park Service, [httphttps://www.itd.nps.gov/cwsscivilwar/ soldiers-and-sailors-database.htm The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System] (accessed 4 January 2011).</ref>
