10th Cavalry Regiment was organized in July, 1864, near Petersburg, Virginia. It was formed by consolidating seven companies of the 7th Confederate Cavalry and three of Millen's 20th Georgia Battalion Partisan Rangers. The regiment was assigned to General P.M.B. Young's Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia, and skirmished south of the James River. Later it transferred to Logan's command, fought in South and North Carolina, and surrendered with the Army of Tennessee. The field officers were Colonel V.H. Taliaferro, Lieutenant Colonel Thomas D. Claiborne, and Major Jesse H. Sikes.
