Brief History[edit | edit source]

"Also called 13th Tennessee Cavalry Regiment: 15 Tennessee Cavalry Regiment.  Organized as a battalion September 1, 1862; increased to a regiment November 24, 1862; most men captured on Morgan's raid into Ohio in 1863; remainder served in 1st Kentucky Cavalry Battalion, Duke's Brigade."[1]

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin[edit | edit source]

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 - Captain Micajah Griffin - Men from Sumner County.
  • Company B - Captain William P. Simmons, Thomas E.S. Russwurm - Men from Sumner and Trousdale Counties.
  • Company   - Captain John D. Kilpatrick 
  • Company E - Captain Alex W. Rowe - Men from Sumner or Trousdale County.
  • Company F - Captain A.E. Bell, W.J. Dyer - Men from Sumner County.
  • Company C - Captain Charles E. Cossett - Men from Sumner and Smith Counties.
  • Company H - Captain John W. Wiseman - Men from Sumner, Trousdale and Wilson Counties.

Two other companies were attached to the regiment in December, when changes were made. These had formerly served in Douglass' Battalion, Partisan Rangers, and were:

  • Company I - Captain Felix H. Blackman - Men from Davidson County.
  • Company K - Captain J. Richard McCann, Duke Cox - Men from Middle Tennessee, mostly Davidson and Rutherford Counties.

The information about the companies is from Tennesseans in the Civil War, (accessed 19 Nov 2011).


Other Sources[edit | edit source]

  • Beginning United States Civil War Research gives steps for finding information about a Civil War soldier or sailor. It covers the major records that should be used. Additional records are described in 'Tennessee in the Civil War' and 'United States Civil War, 1861 to 1865' (see below).
  • National Park Service, The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System, is searchable by soldier's name and state. It contains basic facts about soldiers on both sides of the Civil War, a list of regiments, descriptions of significant battles, sources of the information, and suggestions for where to find additional information.
  • Tennessee in the Civil War describes many Confederate and Union sources, specifically for Tennessee, and how to find them.. These include compiled service records, pension records, rosters, cemetery records, Internet databases, published books, etc.
  • United States Civil War, 1861 to 1865 describes and explains United States and Confederate States records, rather than state records, and how to find them. These include veterans’ censuses, compiled service records, pension records, rosters, cemetery records, Internet databases, published books, etc.
