Description

The Alabama 6th Cavalry Regiment was organized near Pine Level, early in 1863, as part of Brig. General James H. Clanton's brigade. Recruits were gathered from Barour, Coffee, Coosa, Henry, Macon, Montgomery, Pike, and Tallapoosa counties. It was first engaged near Pollard with a column of the enemy that moved out from Pensacola. Ordered then to North Alabama, the 6th was concerned in several skirmishes near Decatur, with small loss. During the Atlanta-Dalton campaign, the regiment served for several weeks as part of Brig. General Samuel W. Ferguson's and Brig. General Frank C. Armstrong's brigades, losing quite a number. Companies Of The AL 6th Cavalry Regiment Macon and Pike -- C. T. Hardman. Coffee -- C. S.
