22nd Regiment, Tennessee Cavalry (Barteau's)
Brief History[edit | edit source]
The 22nd Regiment, Tennessee Cavalry (Barteau's) originally and often called 2nd Regiment, was organized in June, 1862, by consolidating the 1st and 7th Tennessee Cavalry Regiments. February, 1865, was consolidated with Wilson's 21st Cavalry Regiment and surrendered with the Department of Alabama, Mississippi, and East Louisiana. 
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.
