Brief History

22nd (Nixon's) Tennessee Cavalry Regiment was also called 20th Tennessee Cavalry Regiment.

Organized in spring of 1864; consolidated about March, 1865 with 14th (Neely's),  15th (Stewart's) and 21st (N.W. Carter's) to form Nixon's Consolidated Regiment; paroled at Gainesville, Alabama, May 1865.  [1]

"Units of the Confederate States Army" by Joseph H. Crute, Jr. contains no history for this unit.[2]

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.
