Brief History

4th Cavalry Regiment [also called 4th Battalion] was organized during the fall of 1862 by consolidating Hughes' and Stockdale's Mississippi Cavalry Battalions. Surrendered with the Department of Alabama, Mississippi, and East Louisiana. Its commanders were Colonel C.C. Wilbourn, Lieutenant Colonels Cornelius McLaurin and Thomas R. Stockdale, and Major James M. Norman.

Regiment Companies with the County 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.
