19th Battalion Mississippi Cavalry (George’s)


(from Dunbar Rowland’s "Military History of Mississippi, 1803-1898"; company listing courtesy of H. Grady Howell’s "For Dixie Land, I’ll Take My Stand’)


Transcriber’s Note: Rowland notes that Lt. Col. J.Z. George commanded the 19th Battalion MS Cavalry, which unit shortly became the 5th MS Cavalry. No other information on the 19th Battalion MS Cavalry (George’s) has been found by this transcriber. H. Grady Howell’s "For Dixie Land, I’ll Take My Stand," the best-ever listing of MS regiments, battalions, and companies, does not list George’s 19th Battalion MS Cavalry. However, Rowland being contemporaneous with the actual veterans of the War for Southern Independence, the 19th Battalion MS Cavalry (George’s) will be listed here. See 5th Mississippi Cavalry (George’s).
