It had duty in Western and Middle Florida until November. The regiment mustered out November 17, 1865.[1] For more information on the history of this unit, see: The Civil war Archive section, 1st Regiment Cavalry, (accessed 22 March 2012). Companies in this Regiment with the Counties 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.
