About Ezekiel James Hitchcock, (CSA)

11th Cavalry Regiment was organized with 855 men at Camp Reeves, Grayson County, Texas, in May, 1861. Some of its members were from Clarksville and Mt. Pleasant, and Bowie County. This regiment, along with the 8th Texas Cavalry, was one of the best in Confederate service. It was active in the Indian Territory and Arkansas, then was dismounted when it arrived on the eastern side of the Mississippi River.

After fighting at Richmond and Murfreesboro, it was remounted and assigned to Wharton's and T. Harrison's Brigade. The unit participated in the Chickamauga, Knoxville, and Atlanta campaigns, then was active in the defense of Savannah and the campaign of the Carolinas. It contained 599 officers and men in the spring of 1862 and reported 7 killed, 87 wounded, and 20 missing at Murfreesboro.

Only a remnant surrendered on April 26, 1865. Ezekiel had 2 discharges from the war. We have the records of the first from the National Archives. He was accidentally shot while in Southern Louisiana and sent back home alone on his horse. He recuperated and enlisted again and served for the duration of the war.

He never would accept his pension, however, after his death his wife Lucinda applied for it.

While on leave recuperating he married Lucinda Diana Stewart on Nov 15, 1863, just across the Red River in Indian Territory.
