CSA Civil War. TN 2nd (Smith's) Cav. Rankin's Co.

James was in the Civil War and fought for the Confedracy. Although the 2nd Tn CSA was consolidated into the 4th Tenn (MClemores) calvary, early in the war. I have a copy of his enlistment card, from 1862. Upon enlistment he was given commutation credit (reimbursment by the Confedracy)for bringing his own horse ( $140.00), and his own weapon. No more information is available on his service. Although he had family in Alabama Calvary regiments, and I have found reports that many Tennesssee calvarymen we're consolidated into Alabama regiments in 1862.
