First Tennessee and Alabama Independent Vidette Calvary


The vast majority of publications have shamefully ignored or forgotten the fighting men from Tennessee and Alabama who joined the Union. In many communities, volunteers made up of relatives and friends joined in a effort to "put down the rebellion." The men who joined the Tennessee and Alabama independent Vidette Cavalry did so because they felt this was the right and honorable thing to do.

This publication contains the muster rolls for Companies A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H from Tennessee and Alabama. It includes rank, company, county of residence, and date of enlistment. If wounded or killed, date/place of injury/death, and cause is given.
