The 10th Regiment was formerly called the 1st Cavalry Regiment, Wise Legion, and 8th Battalion. [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.

  • Many of the men were from Richmond and Albermarle, Rockingham, and Henrico counties.
