15th Cavalry Regiment
15th Cavalry Regiment was organized at Mobile,
Alabama, early in 1864 by consolidating the five-company 3rd Florida
Cavalry Battalion and five Alabama independent cavalry companies.
It served in Quarles', Reynold's, Page's, I. W. Patton's, Liddell's,
R. McCulloch's, and H. Maury's command. The regiment remained
in the Mobile and Pensacola area, then moved to Louisiana where
it fought at Tunica. Returning to Mobile it guarded the approaches
to the city. A detachment was captured in the fight at Claiborne
on April 17, 1865, and the remaining force at Demopolis on April
30. Colonel Henry Maury, Lieutenant Colonel T. J. Myers, and Major
Robert H. Partridge were its field officers.
